all of life to the glory of god

All of life is spiritual. There is not a single area that I can claim as “mine” when I am submitted to Christ. Yet submitting our lives to God’s design as specified by His Word is in our best interest. Submitting to God’s design brings glory to God and fulfillment to us (i.e. “abundant life” John 10:10). The balance wheel below helps to quickly assess the different areas of our lives in relation to the plumb line of God’s Word. To fill out this chart, simply mark where you are on a scale of 0 (struggling) to 10 (thriving). On the back of this page you will find references to Scripture that help to define each of these areas from a biblical worldview.
