Wisdom is the fruit of a balanced development. (Alfred Whitehead, 19th-20th century English philosopher)

Balance in life may be hard to achieve, but it is important. Whitehead continues his observation, “It is this balanced growth of individuality which should be the aim of education to secure.” If our life is overcrowded with any one thing—even a good thing—we will likely lose out on other very good involvements that would give us a greater sense of balance and stability.

O Lord, what a variety of things you have made! In wisdom you have made them all. The earth is full of your creatures. (Psalm 104:24)
