Pine needles, resin, and ants

Imagine an ant hill made out of pine needles seven feet high!

That’s what you can find in Northern Europe and cold Siberia.

These wood ants don’t build ant hills out of sand but collect massive amounts of pine needles and pile them on tree stumps. The rotting vegetation causes heat, providing warmth during the winter, and during the summer, the pine needle pile is full of holes and tunnels for ventilation and air conditioning. It is steep-sided to shed water. To prevent fungal or bacterial infections, the ants apply pine resin to their bodies as a disinfectant. These wood ants know what to do; they do it because of instinct. Instinct is what God has built into these wood ants, so they know how to build their pine needle nest, how to ventilate it and how not to get infections.

All this is provided by a God who takes care of every detail. If He cares this much for a wood ant, how much more does He care for you?

For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. - Matthew 6:32 (NKJ)

This blog post is quoted with permission from the book "Have You Considered?"  by Julie Von Vett and Bruce Malone. The book is an excellent creation science resource and is packed with compelling evidence that challenges and refutes evolution theories. The evidence is presented in a "devotional" format with a daily creation truth and scripture. The book is a great read...perfectly paired with ANY of our One One Coffee selections! Both the book and the brew make great gifts too!

If you would like to order a copy for yourself, just follow this link to Once there you can buy the book and also "discover creation" through their many Creation resources.
