Stay in Balance

Stay in Balance

“Don’t…lose your balance.”                                              2Pe 3:17 CEV

If you are an “all-or-nothing” person, the word for you today is, “stay in balance.” Serve God fervently, but don’t forget to love your family and spend time with them. Work hard, but don’t forget to play, relax, and “smell the roses.” Think regularly about heaven, your permanent residence, but maximize every moment you have here on earth for God’s glory. The Bible puts it this way: “You must grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (v. 18 NLT). To live a balanced life you must learn to exercise grace in your dealings with others—and deepen your knowledge of God’s Word. If you strive for one but neglect the other, your life will be out of balance. The best way to stay in balance is to develop these two habits: (1) Get regular feedback from the right people. “Then those who feared the Lord spoke with each other, and the Lord listened to what they said” (Mal 3:16 NLT). We are meant to grow together, not separately. “As iron sharpens iron, so people can improve each other” (Pr 27:17 NCV). Only as you interact with the right people and get regular feedback can you become the person God wants you to be. (2) Check yourself regularly. The Bible says: “Don’t drift along taking everything for granted. Give yourselves regular checkups…Test it out. If you fail the test, do something about it” (2Co 13:5-6 TM). To be spiritually healthy you must regularly check up on such areas as your stewardship, fellowship, ministry to others, character, Bible reading and prayer. You’ll be amazed how these two habits will help you stay spiritually balanced.
