It is always reassuring to see how our God can take even the smallest creatures from His creation to teach us a lesson in our personal duty in making provision for ourselves. God is indeed the author, giver, and sustainer of all things that are both temporal and eternal. He gives His rich blessings, that to obtain them, we must seek His ways as we labor industriously and wisely.
Goto the Ant, Thou Sluggard - Unit Bible study will prove to be helpful to Christian parents who desire to teach children about the importance of avoiding both physical and spiritual slothfulness.
Children can learn from the ant how they can create self-motivating habits, to become industrious, prudent, and how to use perseverance, cooperation, organization, along with taking initiative in providing for themselves and others.
This unit is filled with fun and inquisitive ways for children to learn godly principles. With its accompanying "Table Top" displays, "Memory Cards" and "Discovery Word Definitions" this Bible study is designed to teach children King Solomon's wise Proverb 6:6-9, "Goto the Ant".
(Note: If you are a teacher adapting the ideas suggested, Table Top Displays can easily be converted as bullentin board displays, used as review flash cards or copied for take home materials.)

Genesis 2:15 tells us that before the fall of man, God took Adam and put him into the Garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. We can see from Scripture that mankind was designed to work. Even in the perfect world as God made it, work was necessary for man’s good. The ideal world is not one of idleness and frolic but rather of serious activity and service. Even in the new earth to come, after sin and the curse are completely removed, Scripture says that “His servants shall serve Him” (Revelation 22:3). Instructing precious little ones how to work at home instills biblical concepts and practical applications instantly. If taught right, children will gain godly wisdom at an early age and learn to draw from these lessons as they steadily become mature adults.
