Everything that is not in balance, is out of balance
when our equilibrium is out of balance we get motion sick.
when our lives are out of balance we get physically sick.
when our relationships are out of balance we get emotionally sick.
when our priorities are out of balance we get spiritually and relationally sick.
anything that is not in balance, is out of balance.
To obtain the balanced life your priorities should be God, then family, self, then others. (And the reason you must come before others in a general sense, is that if you are not o.k., there is nothing left to give others. You cannot give what you do not have). Love thy neighbor as thyself, not to the exclusion of self.
Once a life is in balance and healthy; that person can then safely, effectively and faithfully live out the best paradigm:
1) God. 2) Family. 3) Others 4) Self.
