Busy as a Bee

The mistake that so many people make is that they want to get the best out of life without putting their best into it. If we want to taste its sweets, we must work like the bee. One pound of honey represents the concentrated sweetness of 62,000 clover blossoms. To collect that amount, the bee makes 2,700,000 trips to and from flowers, and travels about five million miles in gathering that honey. Now we understand the saying about being as busy as a bee. But do we grasp its spiritual meaning? We must live by God's Word,—and work!—Benedicte's Scrapbook, page 17.
