The cooperation we see among the members of an ant colony evidences the kind of wisdom that allows people to thrive when they work together—even when individual weaknesses might hold them back. Thus, it is not surprising that God in His wisdom has designed His church to work in such a way. The Lord has gifted each of us differently so that His church grows to maturity as we work together. Are you using your gifts in your local church?
The various creatures described in Proverbs 30:24–28 drive home the point that if we are content with where God has placed us and are happy to be under His leadership, we will enjoy success both now and in the life to come. Indeed, it can be hard to remain content, but the Lord has given us His Spirit to help us and to prepare us for any task to which He has called us. Let us be content to serve Him where we are and under His all-wise lordship.
