I have been pondering Proverbs 6:6-8 for few weeks. It asks us to observe the ants, a tiny creation and observe its way and be wise. No commander, overseer or ruler yet they can store its provision in summer and gathers its food at harvest.

Just now, the lecturer ask us to go out and observe the creation for 15 minutes. All of us went out and came back with our reflection and observation. Most of us touched by the creation. Most of us confess that through our busyness, we did not observe this beautiful creation.

I have observed the ants while I was in the garden. God remind me back the Proverbs. One of my classmates also observed the ants. We came to this conclusion; the creation of God is happily living as they are. The ants are doing what God intended them to do. The birds fly freely in the air. There is no worries in this creation. But, only one creation that always worry although they were made special and different than other creation, human. We have insecurity in our lives. We keep on working to fulfill the emptiness in our lives to keep us away from that insecurity. But God says, we are much valuable than the birds in the air in Matthew 6:26. The birds do not sow or reap or store away in barn, yet God still feed them. If we are much more valuable than the birds, do you think God would not feed us?

Spent some time, and go out and look at the creation. Discern God when he speaks.
