“The Family Life of a Christian Leader

We hear a lot about living a balanced life. What does that mean? Here are Aijith’s insights on this very difficult subject.
Christians are called to a balanced life. That does not mean doing everything in moderation; rather, it means being obedient in every area of life. That is a difficult task in this busy world. Being committed to doing our jobs or studies well while being active in church and also being good family members can be very tiring. We cannot predict some of the needs that will arise in those areas. One spouse might be upset at night when the other desperately wants to sleep.
Disunity might surface right in the middle of a busy program. A child might need help with his studies at a time when a parent prefers to watch television. At each of these times, we need to stretch ourselves and do what has to be done for the sake of our families.
