Organized people have a place for everything and everything is in its place. Most people, though, may have a place for objects or papers, but oftentimes that place is not used for the storage purpose that was intended.
Offices sometimes have a sign telling visitors not to disturb the “mess” because the one who works there knows where everything is. There is some humorous truth to that statement. But some believe that a messy office, home or room is an indicator of a messy mind.
God is not the author of confusion (1 Corinthians 14:33). Although the analogy of a messy office may not be the exact thought Paul was describing, the principle can be applied. Even if our desks are less organized than some would hope, our minds must not be messy. We need to organize our thoughts and actions. Confusion leads to strife—inner and outer (James 3:16). God wants us to have a deep inner peace and contentment in life. Keep His truth in the right place.
