Keeping Our Spiritual Balance

Published Date:

If grass were blue, how would we know up from down? The answer: equilibrium. Our equilibrium helps us keep balance, know up from down, and have a feel for our location or position. Without it, we could not even walk. This is much like our spiritual ability to tell right from wrong, have a feel for where we are with God, and keep our balance in this life. It is extremely important to our Christian walk.

Sometimes, equilibrium is effected when a person has inner ear trouble. So, too, we may lose our spiritual balance when we have trouble with our inner ear. Isaiah 30:21 states, "And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left." Perhaps you can think of some other applications of this comparison. I wonder what other problems cause someone to lose their balance?
