I looked up into the eave of my home recently and saw a magnificent spider's web. I was astonished at the handiwork. This intelligent insect is a master architect. It is as if he is well versed in geometry and mathematics. What a wondrous web he did spin! The pattern is meticulously produced and the measurements are laid out to perfection. One swing of the broom would have swept away the spider's work but I felt no urge to destroy her weave.
I know her diligence. Were I to destroy her web she would set to work right away to spin her masterpiece again. It would be replaced in short time. There is so much to learn from such a small creature. She chose to build in the eave of my house but spiders are not particular about where they hang their threads. They stretch them between the saplings in the woods. They wander into barns and garages but they are just as likely to be found in the palaces of kings or the mansions of the wealthy. "The spider takes hold with her hands, and is in kings' palaces." - Proverbs 30:28.
