To me life has so much to do with balance. A balance between living in the world, but not of the world. A balance between giving the flesh what it needs, but not whatever it pleases. A balance between hating sin, yet loving the sinner. A balance between having admiration versus harboring feelings of coveting.
Right now I feel as if I am living life a bit imbalanced...there's not enough of the Spirit ruling within me. I am sure that a little talk with Jesus will make it right, but what about when you don't want to have a talk with Jesus because you know HIS way of making it right will come at a cost to you? More specifically, a cost to my comfort. Then I suppose there is another form of balance, accepting what you can get and realizing that you can't always get what you want.
So, I have a choice to make: Live life imbalanced, or in harmony with the will of God?
