“Go to the ant, O sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise.”   Proverbs 6:6

   “I don’t know, dudes; this stuff tastes funny” “Oh, don’t be such a ‘panties anty’ – you always act like such a douche…”  “No, just look around!  Some of the guys are dropping like flies”  “They’ll be o.k. after they sleep it off”  “Some of them have been wallowing around for quite a while; and all of us seem to be moving more slowly?”  “You’re nuts!  This stuff is great, and there’s plenty for all of us; let’s take some bake to the mound.”

   They keep coming!  Three traps nearly full of them.  And, they are carrying it back to their home to share with the ants there.  Some people call them “piss ants” because they once were used to detect sugar in the urine of possible diabetics.  (they replaced human taste-testers?!  Really!)  But, the poison must have something sweet in it?!  One by one they are dying, thankfully.  Why can’t they see the dead ones floating in the poisonous, viscous liquid?  But, they walk over dead and dying brothers to get to what is killing others all around them.

   What does the Snake put in our traps?  Are we any smarter?  What are we sipping?  Gulping?  Somehow, we convince ourselves that “it” is good, if not really what we want.  It tastes sweet, but leaves a bitter aftertaste and an upset stomach.  And, it eats away at us from within, slowly, but surely.

   “…the ants go marching  one by one …”

Proverbs 6:6-8 (NIV)

6   Go to the ant, you sluggard;
    consider its ways and be wise!
7   It has no commander,
    no overseer or ruler,
8  yet it stores its provisions in summer
    and gathers its food at harvest.
