“He’s a jerk.”
“Why won’t he sign autographs?!”
I don’t know.
I don’t know Tiger personally.
Colin Cowherd said something the other day that really was profound (at least I think so). *You can hear his radio show, The Herd, on ESPN Radio in the mornings.
When people look at Tiger Woods, they see a jerk. When I look at Tiger Woods, I see someone that is focused and determined to win.
Cowherd then proceeded to talk about how perception is NOT always reality, and the reality is the best in the world are not balanced people.
Should we strive to live balanced lives?
The perception is this: We want them to be balanced, normal people that value the same things we value (like getting an autograph).
The reality is this: We are paying them to not be balanced, but instead be better than everyone else. If they were like us, they won’t be the best, but instead be status quo.
In fact, we don’t apply this Balance Rule to a lot of things in life!
What about when it comes to our faith?
And you must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. (Deut 6:5)
That doesn’t sound balanced.
It’s an all-or-nothing reality.
I want to be ALL about God!
I want to be ALL about the Mission!
I want to be ALL about who He has created me to be!
I want to be ALL about holiness!
- What about you?
- Would you consider yourself a balanced person?
- Have you, like me, been taught we should strive for balance?
- Are there other scriptures in the Bible that deal with all-or-nothing issues? List one, or some. (Hint: there are many)
