Ways Of Nature
I love Nature, observing it is an opportunity to examine the mind of God and it gives intellectual insight into this thing called "Life". One thing in particular that fascinates me about Nature is that, unlike Man (human beings), animals and insects' primary way of communication is not WORDS, but visual signals and postural gestures - BODY LANGUAGE. Other species don't have verbal conversations, yet they still function and are fully capable of carrying out Genesis 1:22, which is to 'Be fruitful, and multiply'.
This tells me that the BEST form of communication is not speech, but rather our ACTIONS. It is not what we SAY, but what we DO! The Ant doesn't have to SAY "I will provide for my family", he PROVES it by going out to gather food for his colony DAILY. The Penguin doesn't have to SAY "I will be there to help raise Our baby when it comes", he PROVES it by staying with the mother and taking turns nurturing the baby. The Orangutan doesn't have to SAY "I will protect my child from all harm and danger", she PROVES it by NEVER letting her baby out of her sight not even once until the age of 6-7 years old.
This mindset of taking care of responsibilities within a Family (which anyone 40+ years old can agree) doesn't appear to exist anymore. But in Proverbs 6:6-8, Solomon addresses lazy people and tells them to consider the work ethic of Ants. If any of us are in lack, let us consider the ways of Nature. Wisdom and Revelation is all around us. Take an interest in God and the things OF God and you will be alright ^__^.
God bless you, stay encouraged.
