I think that 'living wholly' might be the same as balance. But I like it better. Balance implies dropping things and adding things until the scales even out. I want to live my life as wholly me and wholly God's - God made me a passionate person with a variety of interests - so it is up to me to use my gifts in a way that is a completion of who I am. I don't think I have the right to discard them. The things I drop should be things that aren't of me to begin with things added on from the outside that aren't part of what God made me. If so, living wholly would be about entering more fully into my relationship with Christ...it sounds simple...I doubt if it is.
Do you live wholly?
