There is a quality that mortals are rather inclined to look upon as a human trait which a person simply has or has not; and because lack of it is not considered to be a failing of great importance, its presence or absence in ourselves or others is usually somewhat ignored without any serious thought being given to it. It is what is known as orderliness.

Knowing, as we do in Christian Science, that acts are the expression of thought, we who are striving to become better Christian Scientists should constantly be looking to the manifestations of our thoughts as what we sometimes are pleased to call "straws in the wind," which indicate the way the wind of our thinking is blowing. The scores of little evidences of unsystematic thinking which may creep into one of our days may be of no consequence of themselves, but if in them we find manifested some basic disorderliness in our thinking, then it is time for us to do some good mental house arranging.
