"The legs of the lame are not equal: so is a parable in the mouth of fools." Proverbs 26:7. "But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ..." Amen. 2 Peter 3:18.

Some people limp because they are winners; others limp because they are losers. Balance in interpretation and living is the sign of stability and maturity. Balance is the evidence that we are growing in our relationship with Christ.

Bible knowledge without grace makes one a self-righteous, critical Pharisee. Grace without Bible knowledge leaves one gullible and susceptible to false doctrine. We must have both, grace and sound doctrine in our lives, if we expect to walk as Jesus walked. Knowledge puffs up; grace builds up. A liberal, who ignores sound doctrine is not in step with Christ, nor is the fundamentalist who fails to display Christ's grace toward others. Spurgeon said, "We must have a backbone to hold up our head; it must be able to bend or we will bump our head on the beam." Hopefully, our legs are equal and we won't go limping through life.
