Two ants on a clod of dirt
Were fighting o’er a fly;
Never looking up to see
The water swirling by.
They were obsessed with just that fly,
And not their doom to come.
And soon that mighty stream dissolved
The clod they fought upon.
Friend, don’t get caught up like those ants,
And miss the warning signs
That this old world’s dissolving, and
There’s very little time.
God’s Word says we must be prepared
Before He comes again,
So we will not be caught off guard
But looking up, for Him.
“But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night,
in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise,
and the elements will melt with fervent heat;
both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.
Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved,
what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness,
looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God…”
2 Peter 3:10-11 NKJV
