The Consequences of Disorder

“Cancer” is the term used for over 100 diseases that have something in common: the disorderly growth of cells that invade tissues and organs.

Without order.

So much sadness and pain because, for some reason, cells stopped being organized.

Lack of order always brings problems. It may be that, for a time, we don’t feel or realize that the cause of certain problems in our lives is simply a lack of organization, but eventually, it will be so clear and concerning that we will be provoked to action.

Most people find it difficult to maintain order because it requires persistence. Some are proud to say that they have an “organized mess” or that they prefer to do everything when it works out and just “let life happen!”

It’s a shame because we were created to live in order, which is evidenced by our intricately designed body. Take the circadian rhythm, for example. It’s a type of internal clock in our body that controls the release of hormones and physiological processes. That is its purpose! To make sure we have a regulated routine of when to sleep, eat, and work, to promote our health and well-being.

We also need order in our spiritual life. It’s very easy, in the rush of everyday life, to run around doing everything and not take time for communing with Jesus. It’s also easy in the confusion of our thoughts, to not be able to focus on meditation. That’s why it’s so important to organize our day, put everything we have to do down on paper so that our mind can be freer to enjoy time spent with God. Without it, sin grows in disarray, separating us from our wonderful Father.

But let everything be done with decency and order.

1 Corinthians 14:40

Order is the law of heaven, and it should be the law of God’s people on earth.
