My bag serves as "storage" for important things that I need to bring everyday. I can't leave it at home or in the office. It's like an emergency kit for me. I don't want anyone to open and see what's inside my bag. It's one of my personal belongings. Sometimes they are curious to know and they even presumed that I carry my drawer or it's actually a fridge.
Actually I am ashamed to show what's inside my bag. I don't want anyone to see the clutter. It's totally a mess. So, I set aside a workday to fix it up.
My heart and mind are like that, they accumulate lots of clutter. As I rub shoulders with the world inevitably, perhaps unknowingly, I pick up ungodly thoughts and attitudes. Thinking that life is all about "me" Demanding rights, reaching bitterly toward those who have hurt me. Before long, my heart and mind are no longer clean orderly. And while I think I can hide the mess, eventually it will show.
I've experienced a lot of things already- both bad and good. Perhaps it's time to discard those thoughts of bitterness. Bag up and throw out the old patterns of sensual thoughts. Organize my attitude. Fill my heart with the beauty of God's creations.
