Balancing Life

Balancing Life

Nearly everywhere we turn we hear of people being ‘tired, overworked and under-slept.’ Balance in life is critical, and while we may wish we could do it all, and there were 26 hours in every day, that simply is not the case. Living in balance is the key to a purposeful and happy life. How are you doing at saying ‘no’ to good things so that what you undertake may be excellent? Scripture tells us, “You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability” (II Peter 3: 17).
