Messy Mangers

Tim turned me onto this article by Mike Bellah that actually says mess is ok (sloppiness and laziness is not).

Whether it’s fruitful fields or fruitful people, success doesn’t come without a degree of messiness.

The mess we have is our lifes. It is how we live and although I would like to see the mess reduced, we have a messy manger for a reason.

…lives that are always clean and tidy may have the appearance of success, but, in reality, they are empty, lonely places.

Mike Bellah’s article has its roots in Proverbs 14:4

Where no oxen are, the manger is clean. But much increase comes by the strength of the ox.
