The 4 Square Life

Jesus grew in wisdom, stature, favor with God and favor with man.  The 4 square life is a very important Core Value that we teach at Deer Creek Camp.  It is important because it helps us remember to keep our life in balance.  When we pay more attention to one thing then our life can become out of balance and sometimes fall apart.  Think of it like this, if you have four glasses sitting on a tray that is being balanced but a another cup and you continue to pour water in each one of the glasses on top, if one glass has more water than another the tray will collapse and all the water will spill out.  The Lord has blessed each one of us with gifts and passions.  He wants us to use these gifts, but also not let them control our life.  There are lines we have to draw in our life.  Sometimes it can be difficult to balance our sports, our time with God, our time with our friends, and even school.  We see in scripture that Jesus grew in all four, wisdom, stature, favor with God and man.  We are called to do the same.  Search your life today and see where you need to balance things out to continue living the 4 square life.
