Go to the ant , thou sluggard consider her ways, and be wise
Proverbs 6:6

This is from a poster I have at home for my older children.
It is called the 'Go to the Ant Chart'
It has eleven sections - each containing some very simple thought provoking questions fit for adults as well as children
I will share a section each day....starting below
