And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
I wouldn’t think of the word “balance” immediately after reading this verse. But when I look again, it makes sense. God created us to live our earthly lives here, in this world. But we are often reminded not to be of this world. How am I to keep that balance? I think the answer lies with the Holy Spirit. If I allow the Holy Spirit to guide me in all I do, I will keep that balance. I will be living in the world as a Christian, and that is all God asks of me.
Holy One, Help me to listen for you through the day. Help me to live a Christian’s day today, as a Christian Pilgrim, seeking you always. Amen
