TOPIC: Organization and Spirituality
"However that which is spiritual isn’t first,
but that which is natural, then that which is spiritual" - 1 Corinthians 15:46.
You may be thinking, "I'm not sure how relevant my organizational habits are to my spiritual life." According to today's verse, they are highly relevant, for you prepare for and prove your spiritual maturity by mastering natural things. After all, if God speaks something to you and you are so disorganized that you forget or fail to follow through because of confusion, you render yourself spiritually ineffective. Do you see that the natural and spiritual are connected? Can you see how your disorganization has spiritual implications?
Lord, there are no shortcuts to effectiveness in You. I must first prove myself in the natural and then You will bestow spiritual responsibilities on me. I must prove myself faithful and part of that is my ability to organize my life, money, time and possessions. Give me wisdom, insight and vision to do just that.
