A customer walked into a machine shop one afternoon. He was so impressed with the cleanliness of the shop that he requested to speak with the store owner. The customer asked the owner, “How do you keep your machine shop clean? Every time I walk into your store it is spotless.” The store owner answered, “My secret is to prohibit employees from placing anything in the corners of the shop. If the corners become cluttered, the entire shop will be cluttered soon thereafter.”
As Christians, we must keep the corners of our life spotless. It is only when we keep the personal corners of our life clean that the open areas will remain free of dirt and clutter.
