Seeking Balance in Life

Faith June 08, 2015 By First United Bank

Not only is the Bible an excellent source to help us be better people and guide us in making good decisions, it’s also a place where I find many scriptures and parables to help myself find balance in life. Below are a few scriptures—ones that remind us to spend life wisely and create balance among our four pillars: Faith, Financial Well-Being, Wellness, and Personal Growth.

Faith

  • “For the Lord gives wisdom: From his mouth comes knowledge and understanding.” – Proverbs 2:6 
  • “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.” – Romans 10:17

Financial Well-Being

  • “For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it? Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish.’” – Luke 14:28-30
  • “For the protection of wisdom is like the protection of money, and the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom preserves the life of him who has it.” – Ecclesiastes 7:12

Wellness

  • “Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for the LORD!” – Psalms 31:24
  • “For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” – 2 Timothy 1:7

Personal Growth

  • “Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance.” – Proverbs 1:5
  • “For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.” – Romans 15:4
  • “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.” – 2 Timothy 3:16

Oftentimes, life is an exhausting balancing act where our success depends on how well we manage everything. But as you can see, the word of God is a powerful tool we can all use to help us find the balance we need in our lives.
