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 New York. In 1999 I migrated to Australia, married my beautiful wife, Anna, and became a pastor. We are now the proud parents of four children ranging in age from five to eighteen. We are still pastoring a beautiful church in the the heart of Brisbane, Australia (www.brisbanefire.com) and we lead an awesome Bible 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).
