There are four things which are little on the earth, but they are exceedingly wise. Proverbs 30:24
The writer of Proverbs 30 was counting his blessings while pondering God’s diverse creation. Four little creatures brought awe to his heart as he considered their skill. First, he was amazed at the tiny ants, which hurry around in organized lines setting aside their food for winter. Second, rock badgers, who know how to craft homes in the mountain crags. Third, locusts, which appear at once to be organized and disorganized as they sweep through the sky. Fourth, spiders, whose ability to spin webs makes them among the world’s greatest engineers (verses 24-28).
Perhaps you’re not very thankful for ants or spiders, but take a moment to watch them and ponder how such tiny creatures know how to do their daily work. Then turn your focus to aspects of God’s creation that bring you more delight. As you go through the weekend, take time to notice the flowers, fields, grass, clouds, birds, puppies, and sunsets. God created a world of wonder, surrounded by galaxies of glory.
Count some of them as blessings today.
All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small, all things wise and wonderful, the Lord God made them all. Cecil Frances Alexander
