A Balanced Life
A Balanced LifeA balanced life is characterized by order, peace, and wholeness.
The life of Jesus is an excellent model concerning balance.
- He never hurried.
- He never had to play catch up, and
- He was never taken by surprise.
Jesus grew in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and all the people. (Luke 2:52)
Each part of our life should get the right amount of time and effort at the right time.
This is not giving each part of our life the same amount of time, but giving each part the necessary allotment of time, that makes life balanced.
Throughout his life, Jesus was under constant pressure. Friend and enemy alike pursued him, but Jesus brought time under control. He is well rounded. He grew intellectually, physically, spiritually, and socially.
Does your life reflect a balance?
Do you make time for intellectual growth?
If you are too busy to read a book or engage in a study that stimulates the mind, you are too busy.
Do you make time for your physical health?
Many people burn out because of improper personal maintenance.
Take care of your physical self.
Do you make time for your relationship with God?
Do you feel too busy for prayer, Bible study, meditation, or devotions?
"Take time and know that I am God." Psalms 46:10:
Take time to be holy, speak with the Lord .
