I’m going to have a lot of questions when I see Jesus face-to-face. And one of the first is, “What’s with the ants, slugs, and spiders?!”
I have them all over and around my house these days.
Stomping and swatting has become the norm.
I stomped on a few ants on the way to the fridge this morning, hopped over a few (million) slugs on the front step to get to the newspaper,
and, because we live in the woods, I ALWAYS, always, always have to watch where I put my hands outside the house, ’cause I might feel this:
I can understand God making chocolate, or mountains, or furry little kittens, but ants? slugs? and spiders?!
Well, today I start a three part series on the creepy-crawlies about my house.
My new motto is: If you can’t beat ’em, learn from ’em.
We’ll start with the ant.
Like I said, our kitchen’s been crawling with them.
So, I put out some poison on the counter.
Some sweet, sticky poison.
They swarmed it like a watering hole in desert!!!
They thought they’d found a little heaven on earth.
Reminded me of our toxic culture. The movies, the TV shows, the music. It’s so sweet. So we suck it all down.
And who gets the last laugh?
The Ant Prayer: “Jesus, You are truly sweet. The Bread of Life, the Bible says. Oh, may I taste and see that You are good. (Psalm 34:8) Change my wants from cheap thrills to You. Fill my soul with food that will last. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
“Come, eat my food and drink the wine I have mixed.” ~~ Proverbs 9:5
