Like many of you, I’m “resolving” to address some areas in my life this new year. What I’ve found, though, is that I’m not very good at keeping these resolves – I’m sure you know what I mean! What struck me as I was thinking this through is that instead of “resolve”, I need balance! Balance between what needs to be addressed and those areas that, no matter how much they are addressed, there’s nothing I can do about them! Balance makes sense to me because of what we just celebrated...the divine becoming human while still divine – Jesus Christ, the Son of God found in the child of Bethlehem...Christmas balance. If this is how God chooses to work then it would make sense for me, too. And, since this is God’s way, it makes sense that He would empower me to walk in His way – in balance, between His holiness and my humanity...the saint He’s made me and the sinner I struggle with! Balance – what do you think about this “resolve”?
