Proverbs 6:7 (NKJV) — 7 Which, having no captain, Overseer or ruler,
No employer, no supervisor, no training. The ant has no guide, no one to train her to do her job. She has no overseer, no supervisor to tell her what to do and to make sure she has done what she should. She has no ruler, no employer to whom she must ultimately answer. How much would the average person accomplish if he had none of these? People have abundant opportunity to make wise use of the counsel of those in authority, but they often ignore it. They think they would like to be free of restraint, but if they were free, they would often resort to anarchy.
