The Sola Panel | The ethics of a balanced life

I found this article helpful. So often we hear a call for balance, but is balance a biblical concept? Andrew Barry from The Sola Panel says, "The greatest commandment is not a command to be balanced, but to be extreme: “[L]ove the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength” (Mark 12:30)." He comes up with this formula:
  1. In our character (being), we should seek virtues, not balance.
  2. In our actions (doing), our character may demand that we act in a balanced way.
