Balancing at 18,000 ft.

With no parachute, Mike Howard walked across a 19 foot beam only 3 inches wide between two hot air balloons at a height of 18,800 ft. By the end of his adventure, Mike and his helicopter film crew had covered over 65 miles of Michigan countryside at a speed of more than 45 miles per hour!

Mike Howard is a man with an unusually good sense of balance. He gives us an excellent illustration of good time management.

We misuse our time by getting out of balance in any area. Work is a good use of time, but it has to be balanced with recreation. Recreation is a good use of time, as long as it is balanced with work. In the spiritual realm, study of Scripture is wonderful, as long as it is balanced with outreach and witnessing is great as long it is balanced with deepening our own souls as well. Any good activity has to be balanced with other good activities.

Keeping the different areas of our life in balance will help us redeem the time.
