Both

decision

Sometimes both is best.

You don’t have to choose between grace and truth. Go for both.

You don’t have to choose between zeal and knowledge.  Go for both.

You don’t have to choose between deep and wide.  Go for both.

You don’t have to choose between passion and wisdom. Go for both.

You don’t have to choose between personal righteousness and social justice.  Go for both.

You don’t have to choose between the Spirit of God and the Word of God. Go for both.

You don’t have to choose between relevance to God and relevance to men. Go for both.

You don’t have to choose between contending for the faith and striving for unity. Go for both.

You don’t have to choose between explosive revival and inch-by-inch progress. Go for both.

You don’t have to choose between Gospel-rest and hard-core holiness.  Go for both.

You don’t have to choose between being heavenly-minded and being earthly-good. Go for both.

You don’t have to choose between loving God and loving people. Go for both.

Go all the way with both.

Dead religion has mastered the dark art of proudly embracing one virtue, while conspicuously neglecting another. Flee the pride-stroking seduction of such foolishness. Go all the way in all the ways of Jesus. Do justly, love mercy, walk humbly.
