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).

I was born and raised in Long Island, New York. In 1999 I migrated to Australia, married my beautiful wife, Anna, and we planted a church and Bible School. We are now the proud parents of four children ranging in age from five to eighteen. We are still pastoring the same beautiful church, Church on the Park, in the the heart of Brisbane, Australia (www.brisbanefire.com). We also continue to teach our awesome students at Holy Fire Ministry Training School (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).
