Do You Compartmentalize?

I am a husband.

And  a dad.

And a friend.

I’m a Vol fan.

I’m a manager.

I’m a follower of Christ.

And some people think I need to check the majority of that stuff at the door when I walk into work.

Here’s the problem with that.

The person that wants me to check all of those hats at the door doesn’t do that.  None of us really do.

I’ve had a few people tell me that they compartmentalize everything and don’t let the different parts of their life affect the other.  You know what I say?

Hogwash.

I say if that’s true, then there is too much compartmentalization.

Each and every part of our lives influence and affect the other.

I want my faith in Christ to touch each part of my life.  I want to look at each “compartment” in my life with Christ’s eyes.

I think there is too much compartmentalization.

Let’s live in such a way that each part of our lives makes the other better.  There is too much compartmentalization.

 Do you compartmentalize your life?

    I would not argue with you on anything except maybe the Vol thingy. 🙂 i think we all tend to compartmentalize…even when we try not to or say we don’t. In reality, as you have stated, my life in Christ should affect every part of me.

    I try not to compartmentalize. My faith is a huge part of how I live my life. But I’m sure there are times when this doesn’t shine through as clearly as it should. Thanks for the reminder, Larry.

    Very well stated. Glad I came across your blog. Christ is everything, not just the most important thing. He embodies our identity and existence, in every arena of life.
