Pr. 30:25: “The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their food in the summer”
I was drawn to 2 somewhat different verses together today, but in the end found them very akin.
2 Cor. 9:10, “Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness.”
Giving (sowing seed) is just like storing up/preparing for later. When you give, well… 2 Cor. 9:6 says, “when you sow bountifully you will also reap bountifully.”
Paul knew that the One who supplies the seed can and will also multiply whatever seed you, in turn, sow around you.
So, just like the ant, when you bountifully sow in your ‘summer’ months, you are wisely storing up and preparing for your ‘winter’ months.
God’s law is universal, which means it is applicable in all cases. You can count on it.
And none of our gifts are too little. Just ask the ant.
