If the little one could speak he would encourage us to be like the ant who prepares her meat in the summer time. He would exhort us not to be a sluggard in spiritual things. He would remind us that Christ comes at an unknown hour.
Now Christ conquers, and achieves his own ends, but he does so to some extent invisibly. His enemies in us and outside us seem to prevail. But he will bring forth judgment unto victory, in full view of all.
