Mussar | A Lesson on Order
All your actions and possessions should be orderly — each and every one in a set place and at a set time. Let your thoughts always be free to deal with that which lies ahead of you.
Those who possess order in their lives are a beacon to those around them. This trait is also coupled with faithfulness and the ability to stay on task. Those who embody order have actions/tasks all of an orderly nature – everything has a set place and at a set time.
First a person should put his house together, then his town, then the world. (Rabbi Israel Salanter)
