God-inspired moderation

Originally printed in The Christian Science Monitor, August 3, 2015.

One of my favorite political analysts typically presents a moderate, balanced assessment of issues. He can be definite about what he feels is right or wrong, but his views generally reflect an evenhanded perspective.

In these times of political polarization and extreme viewpoints, a balanced view of events is especially welcome. It brings to thought a Bible verse from the New Testament that says: “Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand” (Philippians 4:5). I like to think of this in connection with another verse, “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 2:5).
