"Out Of Balance"

"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."  Matthew 6:33

Do you ever wonder why you can't "get it together"?  Why things just aren't "lining up"?  Why you feel like you are "spinning your wheels"?  You can't seem to get anything accomplished?  Perhaps it is because you are "out of balance". 

What does it mean to be "out of balance"?  Our lives consist of the spiritual and the physical.  It is easy to get out of balance if we are leaning and walking too much in the physical-- or flesh.  Giving attention to our spiritual life gives us balance in our physical life.  On the other hand, if we neglect our spiritual life-- prayer, the reading of God's Word, fellowship and communion with Him-- it will cause our physical lives to be one sided, non-productive, in a state of confusion, walking in chaos, never going any where and so on. 

Giving our spiritual lives the proper attention (seek ye first) they need causes everything else to "fall into place".  It causes all these things to be added to us-- time, energy, creativity, wisdom, talent, ability, motivation, understanding, strength, etc.-- all the things we need to be productive in the natural realm.   

The result of being out of balance causes you to lean more one way than another.  If you lean too far in one direction you are off balance and can "fall over".  We have to be balanced in both the spiritual and the physical.  But you cannot be balanced in the physical without putting the spiritual first. 

Have a great day.  Is your life out of balance?  Check and see if you are giving attention to, or neglecting, your spiritual life.
