Finding Balance & Migas

Matthew 6:33 (icb)

The thing you should want most is God’s kingdom and doing what God wants. Then all these other things you need will be given to you.

Balance; probably one of my least favorite words. I struggle with it tremendously – both physically like in yoga, and mentally like in life. I would like to say that my battle with balance – understanding it, desiring it, achieving it – has gotten better since I started studying the Word, but unfortunately, that’s not necessarily the truth.

In fact, I would say that I’ve actually become more confused about finding balance in life. Honestly, it feels like there’s conflicting information in the Bible about a lot of different topics. Anyone else feel that way? For example; we can read “Lazy hands will you poor; hard-working hands will make you rich” in Proverbs 10:4, and then see Jesus’ quote about not being able to serve God and money in Matthew 6.

Ecclesiastes 9 encourages us to drink and eat with joy, but Proverbs 23 warns us not to drink or eat too much. Jesus commands us to love people, even sinners, in Luke 6. But we see God continually directing His people to war against their enemies all throughout the Old Testament.

I struggle tremendously to find the balance in my own life and actions. It constantly feels as if I’m walking on a tightrope between two things, trying my very best not to move too far to one side or the other. But I know that just a light breeze can throw me off.

It’s all kind of confusing, isn’t it? But it ultimately boils down to just one thing; focusing on God and His glory. Our motives determine our direction. If our motives are God-centered and our eyes are fixed on Him, our actions and choices will be as well. But if we’re looking inward, self-serving, and dedicated to elevating ourselves, our motives will be impure and our lives will be unbalanced.
