Fulfilment

2 Peter 2:20 When people escape from the wickedness of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and then get tangled up and enslaved by sin again, they are worse off than before.

Psychologist, Abe Maslow, says we all have five basic needs:

  • Physical
  • Safety
  • Belonging
  • Esteem
  • Self-actualization

The last mentioned warrants our brief attention. God has given us each personal abilities which can be used for good. Employing ourselves usefully will benefit us individually as well as benefit our families. But, we still have an obligation to society at large. Selfishness blocks the overflow of goodwill and chokes motivation to think of others. We cannot function successfully if we are introverts. Self-actualization depends on the acceptance of God’s plan for our lives and willingness to bring ourselves under divine management. Only in a controlled relationship with God can we find peace within and fulfillment. Living Life Recovery is attainable through reaching up to Him and moving in outgoingness to everyone else.
