He toils in obscurity, this tiny ant. He is mostly unnoticed by us, seemingly insignificant to our eyes. We focus on things of comparatively greater import. He focuses on labors which tax his strength and tireless work ethic. He works without end; we ignore him unless he begins to annoy us.
Aren’t you glad God does not view us this way? He delights in the wonder of an ant, his creation. How much more does he delight in you and me, his creation made in his image? Remembering this mystery restores in us an awe for all of God’s creation and a renewed appreciation for our uniqueness in his Kingdom. More than that, it rekindles our thankfulness to God whom we worship.
