Have any brothers out there ever given a talk about the ant (Prov. 6:6)?

True story. I was once down to do a talk entitled "Go to the ant thou sluggard" but... um... never got around to doing it. :colter:

Did one on butterflies that may have referred to other bugs. I recall saying something at some point about the selflessness of ants :colter:

What prompted your query?

Well, Solomon tells us to consider the ant so I looked up info online about ant behavior. It's all very interesting and I was wondering whether a brother ever made a talk out of this little creature (and it's spiritual significance). Did anybody know that the ant doesn't have lungs? :colter:

Well, this is more a commentary than an exhortation, but it does cover what you're asking.
I am a Christadelphian. Click here to see my confession of faith.

Prov 18:13 - "He who answers before listening - that is his folly and shame."
Jas 1:19-20 - "My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, for manís anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires."
