Tonight we started a series with our students called “4 Small Things that Act Big”. The series comes from Proverbs 30:24-28.
We took a look at the ant, who according to the passage “aren’t strong, but they store up food all summer.” One of the main ideas I wanted to leave our students with is the importance of considering how their current decisions affect their future. The reality is that the decisions students make now determine who they will be tomorrow.
We need to follow the example of the ant and set aside temporary, immediate concerns and live with future in mind. This involves sacrifice, selflessness and discipline, but the rewards are great.
