Christian Moderator by Pastor E.A Adeboye
Moderation is a good thing, but living a life of moderation is an uphill battle in today’s world. The Bible teaches us that excess doesn’t work so well, and it helps us understand how and why we should live with moderation. A great book in the Bible on the subject of moderation is Ecclesiastes. King Solomon was the wisest king to ever rule over Israel, and he experimented with excess. We can learn a lot from the conclusions of this wise king. Sleep is necessary, but the Bible says too much sleep leads to poverty. Children are naturally immoderate they want to watch the same movie over and over, they want to eat too much of one thing, they lack restraint in expressing emotion. Part of maturity is learning to say “no” to oneself, i.e., to learn the value of moderation.
