striving for balance2

Striving for Balance

“23: Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone” (Matt. 23).

Balance is a little hard to always pin down.

Balance involved the whole counsel:

“20: And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have shewed you, and have taught you publicly, and from house to house….

26: Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men.

27: For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God” (Acts 20).
