Lessons from a Ladybug

Some call it a Ladybird, others call it a Ladybug. Here are three lessons we can learn from this cute little red, orange, or yellow insect.

1. Warning

To warn off predators, Ladybugs secrete a bad smell. This smell tells the predator that the Ladybug does not taste good and helps keep the Ladybug safe. As Christians, we are to warn others about their rejection of Jesus Christ. We are to preach the Gospel to all nations and tell them of the One who died on a cross for their sins and rose on the third day to defeat and conquer the grave and death. Are we warning others of the future that awaits them, the eternal place they will be or are we following the unsaved and not being a true example of Jesus Christ?

Therefore watch, and remember that for three years I (Paul) did not cease to warn everyone night and day with tears. - Acts 20:31
Him (Jesus Christ) we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, - Colossians 1:28a
