Order or chaos

Order or chaos


What are you sowing, order or chaos?

The Good Book says that we reap what we sow. That is taken from Galatians 6. We can reap eternal life or we can reap corruption. To use in everyday life, if we sow order and respect, we can expect to reap those. However, if we sow chaos, we may not like what we reap.

Webster defines chaos as the confused collection or state of things; complete disorder. Chaos can lead to anarchy,which Webster defines as the state of society where there is no law or supreme power; a state of political disorder.

The state of anarchy is what those who are hungry for power love, as they can appear as the knight in shining armor on the white horse, so to speak. When in actuality they are the ones responsible for the chaos, and their idea of order is that they rule, their word is law, and to object is certain bondage or death. I understand that the younger people do not trust the government, yet what they believe to be freedom from law and order, is really the path to chaos, more government and no freedom.

Wisdom that I talked about before, beginning with the fear of the Lord, comes from knowing God, His character, and doing His simple commands, brings peace. His children do not give up anything. And what they gain far outweighs anything the world has to offer. Wisdom is really common sense. If you have peace in your heart in making decisions, I would say you are following wisdom and common sense. The "intellectuals" seem to lack peace, wisdom and common sense.

In the U.S.of A. are we going to sow a Godly heritage of order, or are we going to sow foolish chaos and anarchy?
