Decency and Order

failure to plan leads to planning to fail

1Chron 23 to 25: David made sure that he organized the Temple duties so that the services would run smoothly. He wanted his son to understand how explicit God is about decency and order. Do we do the same for Christ’s church? Paul wrote: “And do everything in a decent and orderly manner.” [1Cor 14:40] There is an old adage that says we either fail to plan or plan to fail. There is an old nursery rhyme that shows us the lack of planning: 

Rub-a-dub, three men in a tub, the butcher, the baker, and the candlestick maker, etc. As we read this, we wonder who will be the leader of this band of merrymakers?

David left no stone unturned. He planned for the bakers of the shewbread, the organizers of the music ministry, and the organizers of the treasury. Do we do the same or do we fail to plan or plan to fail? David and Pail were organizers: Paul wrote: “Let the word of Christ dwell in our richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and spiritual songs with thankfulness to God.” [Col 3:16]
