The Christian Lifestyle: Learning to Strike a Balance

Do not be excessively righteous and do not be overly wise. Why should you ruin yourself? Do not be excessively wicked and do not be a fool. Why should you die before your time? It is good that you grasp one thing and also not let go of the other; for the one who fears God comes forth with both of them. (Ecclesiastes 7:16-18)

In other words my Christian friends learn to strike a balance.

Though our minds and hearts are more aware of the morality issues of this generation, let’s not forget that we live in the same world as those who are not believers. How are we to attract people to the Cross if we are so self-righteous in our walk that we neglect natural human connections?

I have met numerous people whose walk have been ‘blameless’ and with this, I have only admiration for them. However, one’s walk is different from another’s. One’s circumstances are also different from another’s. We cannot impose our beliefs. We can only show the kind of lifestyle we choose to lead.

The Christian lifestyle is more often than not, caught than taught. However, as human beings, we are extremely flawed.

It is not difficult to live a Christian life, it is IMPOSSIBLE.  So, again, why ruin yourself?

Personally, I have learned and unless a person asks me ‘What is your peace all about? What is your comfort all about? Where do you get your love? Where do you get your talents?’ that is the only opportune time for me to say (without blinking), Jesus Christ.
