Applaud Your Small Efforts!

Larry Winget in his book You're Broke Because You Want to Be mentions he can walk through someone's house and tell what that person's checkbook looks like. If it is neat and the drawers organized, he claims it is likely that a neat, tidy system for tracking money is in place. On the other hand, if piles of dirty clothes are on the floor and ALL of the drawers are junk drawers, and the garage is in disarray, he surmises that person has no idea how much money he or she has or owes. Winget states when a person gets control over one area of life, the other areas start to come together. Interesting observations!

Take a look in Genesis at how the Lord ordered the creation process. It was done in an orderly manner, and note that only so much was completed in a day. Everyone is busy and can only accomplish a certain amount at a time. I have been working off and on for the last several months decluttering closets and drawers, etc. That's fine for me - I'm a single full-time employed woman, and a 24/7 parent. We need to applaud all of our small efforts, and keep going forward. The cumulative effects are worth it!
