[Written Especially for Young People]
Alexander Pope, the great English poet, wrote, "Order is heaven's first law." Many thinkers have, no doubt, been impressed with the orderliness of nature, and of the stellar universe. The recurring seasons, the regularity of the moon's phases, the migration of birds in the spring and autumn, the tides, and the beauty of the stars, all hint the fact that creation rests upon a law of order.
Something of this may come to us when watching the traffic in the city streets. We realize that the expedition with which a great number of vehicles and pedestrains pass a given corner without confusion must be regulated by some law or rule. We may also note that any driver who is ignorant of or disobedient to this law hinders his own progress and interferes also with the progress of others.
If order is a prime factor in facilitating ordinary travel through city streets, may it not also be a necessity in helping us to traverse our various mental pathways through the maze of material beliefs to heaven's gate, the portal of harmony? Order does not mean stiff, set limitation, but a natural, fluent progress in line with good. Just as traffic makes most progress when moving in orderly fashion, so also do we progress best when God's law of order governs our activities.
