Some of God's most amazing creatures are insects. He designed and programed the smallest of creatures with some amazing features and abilities. He uses them in scripture to teach us to be diligent, bold and wise. No matter how small, weak, or ugly they are, they still accomplish so much.
Proverbs 30: There be four things which are little upon the earth, but they are exceeding wise:
Proverbs 6:6-8 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.
