Are You Balanced?

Morning Thought: Make sure your giftings and character are well balanced. Your giftings and character are like two people on opposite sides of a seesaw. If your giftings heavily outweigh your character, the seesaw becomes like a catapult, spiralling you into the air for a bone breaking fall. But when your character and giftings are rightly balanced, there is joy and delight, both for yourself and others. “If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing…When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me” (‭1 Cor. 13‬:‭1-2, 11‬ NIV).

Born and raised on Long Island, New York, I migrated to Australia in 1999. That’s when I married my beautiful wife, Anna, and we planted our church and Bible School. We’re now the proud parents of four children, ranging in age from eight to twenty-one. We’re still pastoring the same beautiful church, Church on the Park, in the the heart of Brisbane, Australia (https://www.brisbanefire.com). We also continue to teach our awesome students at Holy Fire Ministry Training School (https://www.holyfireschool.com). I love to write and encourage God's people. And something that many people don't know, I'm a DJ as well (aka DJ SOL Vibes).
