Ol’ King Solomon knew the secret. From Ecclesiastes 7, I find the following pearls as inspiration and encouragement to these mortal bones:solomon.gif

6 Do not be overrighteous,
neither be overwise—
why destroy yourself? [In other words, it’s OK to chill out?]

17 Do not be overwicked,
and do not be a fool—
why die before your time? [In other words, avoid legalism!]

18 It is good to grasp the one
and not let go of the other.
The man who fears God will avoid all extremes . [In other words, “all things in moderation?]

Yay, Solomon!!! He felt what I feel.
