Inchworm Games

Inchworm Games

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, we watch an encounter between a spider and an inchworm.

The predator in today’s drama is a yellow crab spider that’s waiting on a yellow flower which makes him nearly invisible. The potential prey is an inchworm beneath the same flower. The inchworm is tearing off bits of yellow flower petals and sticks them on its back.

Properly camouflaged, the inchworm works his way toward the top of the flower where the spider waits. The spider feels the movement and approaches it but sees nothing. The inchworm lives to see another day.

Our wisdom would say that the inchworm should try to run when he notices the spider. However, the wisdom given to him by the Creator allowed him to continue about his business on the flower. This offers us a good illustration of how following the Lord’s wisdom often requires us to reject our own.
