>The Importance of Balance
“Great is your mercy, O Lord; give me life according to your rules.”
Yes, thankfully God is full of mercy (which is new every morninga), but He is also a God of rules. Jesus was “filled with grace and truth.”
It’s too easy to claim God’s mercy and grace while ignoring His rules and truth.
And it is hard to balance! Alas, the only way to learn balance is to lose it, but I need to guard myself and ask the Spirit to help me be Biblically-balanced lest I slide into licentiousness or legalism…
Comment with any insights you have into this ongoing exercise of keeping balance!
