Anyone who spends any amount of time with me quickly realizes that I thrive on organization. I get excite abut labeling new file folders at the beginning of each year. My day is organized using Google Calendar and Google Task. When I return from a trip I cannot rest until all the suitcases are unpacked and the laundry is started.
On the other hand, many in my life are the exact opposite.
I don’t think that any one approach is better than the other. After all, god created each of in his own image, with our own unique wiring and habits. However, scripture has much to say on the subject of order versus chaos. I have chosen two of my favorites to highlight today.
He must be one who manages his own household well, keeping his children under control with all dignity (but if a man does not know how to manage his own household, how will he take care of the church of God?), – 1 Timothy 3:4-5 NASB
In other words, if you do not have a positive influence on those that are closest to you, how do expect to be able to lead others?
Where there is no guidance the people fall, But in an abundance of counselors there is victory. – Proverbs 11:14 NASB
If we listen to the wrong voice, out lives can quickly go astray.
So, whether you live in order or in chaos, make it a priority to follow God’s lead on your life. As you make daily choices to ABIDE in Christ, follow the path that he has paved just for you.
