HAVE BALANCE IN YOUR LIFE
It is so important, as believers, that we have a balanced life. Our lives should be lived in such a way that God is at the center. Then we can enjoy the blessings of life because we have put God first. When God is first in our lives, we have a different perspective on the way we should live. We can enjoy our family and friends and engage in meaningful fun activities such as going to movies, dinner, etc. We just need to keep God at the center. We must set aside time for meditation and worship regularly. We should strive to maintain a balanced life that acknowledges Him in every way. In Colossians 3:2, we find these words:
“Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth.”
In this chapter, we find instructions on how to live a new life. The writer says, “Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of Heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s Right Hand.” In other words, he is saying think about godly things, do not be preoccupied thinking about the things of this earth. In this chapter, the writer also indicates how our lives are to be lived and tells us that we can show that we love God and others by being tenderhearted, kind, humble, gentle, patient, clothing ourselves with love, and work together in perfect harmony. When you get a chance, read this entire chapter. Prayerfully, this will help us all as we strive to maintain a balanced life. Keeping God at the center is the key!
