Finding Life's Balance - Together
Over the past 16 months or so prices on securities and commodities have been searching for a balance in price. Oil was more than $145.00 per barrel and stocks were inflated in price due to borrowing and leverage. Finding an equalibrium in price or value is painful and takes time. I believe life goes through many times of searching out a 'balance' and it too takes time and is painful. The beauty comes from walking through this painful time in community with friends we love and who love us. Is there someone, or a group of people you walk through life's difficult times with? Is there someone in your life you can be truly honest with about your fears and anxiety of being 'out of balance'? If not, I would suggest you need someone and as I have heard many times if you need a friend be a friend. I suspect if you reach out you will find others walking 'out of balance' who could use a friend as well.
The Christian life and culture should 'look like something'. What does it look like in your neighborhood? Creating culture that reflects the precepts of love and reconciliation is difficult, but it's worth it...and for most of us working towards these things helps us learn to 'walk in balance'. Just thinking!
