They Went Along with Whatever Their King Did

I may have had more protein in my breakfast today – unintentionally. I guess I will have to stop dining “al a desk.”

There were 2 ants on my glass of water. I didn’t think water attracted sugar ants! There were five on my cell phone. (I must be sweet!)

The leader ant smelled something and brought them to my office. The rest blindly followed their leader to their deaths – 31 and counting.

I checked the kitchen cabinet where I keep the sugar. No ants. I could feel the sugar granules that spilled there. The ants could have carted them off.

But, no, the leader told them to follow him to my office. He must have smelled the peppermint essential oil in here. It smells sweet but cannot be carried back to the nest!

Be careful following your leaders. They have been wrong before.

2 Kings 17:7-9, “The exile came about because of sin…They took up with other gods, [8] fell in with the ways of life of the pagan nations God had chased off, and went along with whatever their kings did. [9] They did all kinds of things on the sly, things offensive to their God,…then openly and shamelessly….” The Message

The leader came in “on the sly.” I finished publishing yesterday’s post at 4:15 a.m. There were no ants then. Now they are coming in openly and shamelessly. #32.

“A leaf-cutting ant may:

  1. Carry up to 50 times its own weight more than a hundred yards.
  2. Excavate 30-40 thousand pounds of earth to make a nest.
  3. Carry 5000 lbs. of material back to the nest.
  4. Make as many as 4 round trips a day to food sources that may be more than 400 feet from the nest.”
