Summary: If people ran their business the way that we operate at the house of God sometimes………the businesses would go bankrupt !
There are over 10,000 different species of ants. They are able to lift 20 times their own body weight. Ants also have 2 stomachs. One for storing up food to share with others later, and one for itself.
Ants Teach Us A Lesson About Performance.
a. To perform with efficiency there must be a plan.
At first glance at a anthill, and you just see a lot of activity.
Ants running around everywhere…..but they have a plan.
I believe that there are a a lot of believers who are active, and churches that are filled with programs…..but they have no plan. They have no vision for the future.
They have little if any idea as to what their function is, and which way they are going. As a church we must have a vision, we must be as wise as ants.
We must make all that we do count for the kingdom. Every organization, every committee, every class within the church should be geared towards reaching people, and teaching people !
To perform with efficiency there must be participation.
Take a look at a anthill, and you want see many if any ants just sitting around
or standing around doing nothing.
Everyone one of those ants have a job, and no one has to tell them what it is…..and no one has to push them to do it !
I wish that we could be that way as a church.
Many folks would lose their job if they worked on their job the way they do for the Lord.
We often do things half-way, throw things together at the last moment….put little if any time or planning into our efforts.
We show up for the last minute unprepared !
If people ran their business the way that we operate at the house of God sometimes………the businesses would go bankrupt !
Ants work together in harmony. You know how they’re able to do it!
Each person is responsible! And their so busy doing what their supposed to do that they
don’t have time to fight among themselves!
