Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. Proverbs 6:6-8
This verse talks about the value of hard work, planning ahead and saving for when times get tough. Just as the ant in this verse, we need to be diligent and plan ahead for the future. We need to “gather little by little” as another verse in proverbs says.
