"But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander." ~ 1 Peter 3:15-16
Balancing the Christian Life

Knowing the fallen nature of man, it is difficult to be balanced in living our christian lives. Just take the greatest commandment in the NT for example [Luke 10:27]. Have we really balanced between loving God with our spirit, body and mind? Have we focused on the intellectual without paying enough attention to our spiritual inner being? Have we swung from one end to another on theological issues in response to current trends? Will be contemplating more on this topic and see if I can come out with something short.
