The first modern submarine was the H. L. Hunley which was powered by a hand crank and had a crew of 13. It went down during the American Civil War in 1863. So subs have been around a long time.

There’s another type of sub that’s also been around a while which many of us still haven’t taken advantage of. It’s the subfolder in your email program.

An overflowing and disorganized email inbox is not only frustrating but it’s the source of much wasted time both personally and professionally. One tool for managing emails is to create subfolders, which categorize emails you need to keep for future reference. Subfolders break big lists into smaller, more manageable ones. Even the simplest email programs have them and even the simplest minds can create them and use them.

God’s plan for your life involves order, not chaos. By creating more order, even with our email, we become more useful for the Lord and we redeem the time.
