Balance is Biblical

Luke tells us that Jesus “increased in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man.” He grew in every area of life. Looking at His life and ministry, we find that He was never in a hurry. He walked everywhere He went. He had time to enjoy some relaxed moments with His disciples, happy times with children, weddings and social gatherings. His work was guilt-free because He took His orders from the Father. Even though there were still many who were sick, dead, and unconvinced as to His divinity, He was able to say on the cross, “It is finished.”

Balance Reduces Stress

The key to managing stress is maintaining balance.

Balance Results in Health and Wholeness
Healthy people maintain balance. Healthy people can control how they will express an emotional response. If emotions are not expressed in healthy ways, they usually are directed toward certain organs of the body such as the brain, heart, stomach, colon, and lungs. Most often it is not the event that brings such a reaction, but one’s interpretation of it.

Emotionally healthy people balance their love for self with love for others, love for life, and love for God. They experience the peace that comes with accepting the realities of their circumstances and making the best of their lives—recognizing what they can do, doing it, and leaving their troubles to God.

Healthy people balance legitimate concern with faith in God. The kind of God you believe in influences your spiritual, emotional, and physical state. Healthy people envision wholeness. If you cannot imagine yourself well, you will have trouble believing God can heal and keep you well. We believe it, but how much more powerful it is when we have a mental picture of it!”

Balance Increases Productivity
Balanced people are more efficient and productive. They do not permit a failure to become devastating. They look for answers rather than excuses. They are able to love and accept themselves and others as they are.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
