BALANCE THE PRESSURES
As a deep sea diver submerges deeper and deeper under the water, he feels increased pressure.
How does the diver compensate for the additional pressure that is coming from the outside of his suit? Does he open the face mask to let some water in to relieve the pressure? No, he must increase the air pressure on the inside to compensate.
This illustration shows that when put under great pressure, our first tendency might be to miss a meeting or skip one day in service in order to relieve that pressure. But just the opposite is required. If we feel ourselves being pressured by this system of things, we need to take time for extra study, prayer and service in order to balance the pressure we are feeling!
