Wednesday 1/10 ~ Are you balanced?

The scripture for today, January 10 (1/10), is Colossians 1:10 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:

00-COVER-KINDLE“And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: Bearing fruit in every good work; Growing in the knowledge of God.”

Are you always doing some good work for other people? Does it fill your thoughts and life?  Or are you always delving into the Bible to gain more knowledge of God? Does it fill your thoughts and life? Good for you.

But we see here, we must have a balance. James 2:17 says faith without works is dead. On the other hand, Romans 10:2 says certain people were zealous for God, but their zeal was not based on knowledge.

We have to add to our Bible-based faith, good works. We have to add to our zealous good works, the knowledge of God from the Bible.

It’s hard to get out of a rut, no matter how good it is.  Maybe it’s time to examine yourself.  Maybe it’s time to add the other requirement to your life.  Don’t you want to be spiritually balanced?

    Katheryn, you are so right. It’s a hard thing to balance doing good works with learning about the necessity for the good works (love) and our Father who is the reason for both, again because of His Love. You say it so directly and get right to the point while I always get tangled up in words. I much prefer your way. May God bless you days without end.

    I have that problem. I spend so much time studying and writing, I neglect my good works. We;’re in this together, aren’t we?

Tell me what you think, friend.
