The following thoughts were shared by Koos Basson:

Thoughts from Wiersbe: Balance.

Acts 6:4, “But we will devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word.

You’ve got to keep things balanced.
If all you have in church is bible and no prayer you have lots of light and no heat. You have a bibleschool.
If you have lots of prayer and no bible you have lots of heat and no light. Zeal without knowledge.

Bible knowledge without prayer is a way of puffing people up with knowledge.
Balance must be maintained at all times.
