About Ants

Rosa and Steve have started an ant farm to have some quality time together. Today, they read something interesting. All of the ants that are the workers are female. There are only a few "princes" who reproduce with the queens of the colony. Soon after reading this fact, Steve read Proverbs 6:6 to Rosa, and explained what it means. But there is one word that impacted me. The verse says "Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise." The Bible says HER ways...referring to the working ants as females. The Proverbs were written well over 2000 years ago. How could the author have known such a detail? There is only one explanation. God knows, and He filled Solomon in on such details that could not have been discovered in any other way. Now, when I look at an ant working away, I will think about the fact that the Bible is full of many small many details that we overlook.
