Finding your balance

We’re amazed at the balance of an Olympic gymnast on the beam or a circus performer atop a 15-foot unicycle. A healthy life requires balancing things like work and fun, personal growth and career, relationships and money. Do you find it hard to keep your life in balance? Or maybe you think it’s balanced, but you keep falling over. What if Jesus could show you how to regain your balance?

Enough Time

[Mark 6:30-34, 39-46]

. The most common excuse you’ll hear is “I didn’t have time.” Ever use it? Sometimes it’s true. But most of the time it reveals a life that’s out of balance. It wasn’t easy for Jesus to find balance either – everybody needed him and wanted to be around him. But he found a way to readjust, reserving time for what matters most. What is enough? Can Jesus help me regain my balance?

Enough Money

[Luke 12:13-21]

Q: How much money is enough? A: Just a little more. Some truly need more resources to live. But most of the time what we lack is contentment. According to Jesus, a rich person who never has enough is foolish, while a poor person who gives generously is praised for their faith. How much is enough? Can Jesus help me regain my balance?

Enough Rest

[Matthew 11:25-30]

Most of us are tired – which makes our tempers shorter, our patience thinner, and our self-control weaker. The only cure is to stop doing and simply rest. Jesus spoke these welcomed words to his followers, “Come to me . . . and I will give you rest.” How much activity is enough? Can Jesus help me regain my balance?
