#MorningMed-Key to a balanced Life

The Key to a Balanced Life: Jesus
by Rick Warren
“Seek first God’s kingdom and what God wants.
all your other needs will be met as well.” ( Matthew
6:33 NCV)
If you want to live a truly balanced life, you can only
look at one person in all of history as a model: Jesus.
If you put him at the center of your life, your life will be
more balanced.
Think of your life like a wheel. The center of the wheel
is a hub. All of the spokes of your life (which
represent your relationships, your family, your career,
your goals, etc.) come from that hub. We all build our
lives around some sort of hub. The question is, what
will be your hub? Will it be your family? Will it be your
career? Will it be money?
Or will it be Jesus?
How do you do know what you’re building your life
around? Take a look at whatever you think about the
most. That’s what is driving you.
The center of your life is critical to developing a
balanced life. A solid center leads to a solid life. A
weak, flimsy center leads to a weak life. When I hear
people tell me that their lives are coming unglued, it
usually means one thing: They have a faulty center.
Something other than God has taken priority in their
Not only does the hub create stability, but it also
controls and influences everything else about your
life. Whatever you put at the center of your life will
also be your source of power. The power of a wheel
always emanates from the center outward — never
the other way around.
Make Jesus the center of your life, and he’ll provide
the stability, control, and power you need for your life.
The Bible says, “Seek first God’s kingdom and what
God wants. Then all your other needs will be met as
well” (Matthew 6:33 NCV).
Don’t worry about making Jesus first in your life. Put
him in the center of your life. Let him direct your life,
influence it, empower it, and give it stability.
Do that and all the other areas of your life — from your
family to your career to your goals — will find balance
in Jesus.
