And let the beauty and delightfulness and favor of the Lord our God be upon us; confirm and establish the work of our hands–yes, the work of our hands, confirm and establish it.

Psalm 90:17

It is obvious we are supposed to work more than rest. Some people just lie on the couch, eating junk food and watching television all day, and then wonder why their lives are a wreck.

Once rested, get up and work. You can not take authority over your life if you do not have authority over a sink full of dirty dishes or a messy garage. If you want to grow in ministry to others, the Word says you must get your own house in order first ( see 1 Timothy 3:5) Stay home and clean if you need to; but win the battle of getting your life in order before tackling the whole world.

    Oh, there’s so many ways to take that ‘get your own house in order’….

    I’m prone to take that in the bigger, broader sense–and I’m accountable to keep my own side of the street ‘clean’.

    I do like neatness and order.
    Himself does an excellent job of making sure the house is tidy–but….LOL……his idea of tidy and mine, differ.
