PssstHaveUHeardBanner1Have you heard the latest gossip?  Have you heard the latest myths?  Have you heard the latest scandals?  Have you heard about the latest crime sprees?  There seems to be an unending stream of curiosity inducing subjects spread across the pages of most web sites, especially those of the news agencies.  However, upon following the links, most of the content seems to be repeated over and over on the many sites, but with slightly different titles and lead-ins.  Apparently much of it has originated with the same writer, purchased from some content provider, but altered to fit the publisher’s need.  It is also hard to follow the links without accidentally clicking on advertising links and going to pages you have no interest in, but it takes up your time.  On this site you will find only original content written by the site owner or by someone writing specifically, exclusively, and unpaid (I’m cheap) for the site owner.  This might include reviews of information appearing on other sites or from other sources, but the opinions expressed will be our own.

Needs Hierarchy Theory of Human Behavior?

MaslowHierarchyofNeedsDiagram3Have you heard about the “need-hierarchy” concept of human behavior that was developed by Abraham Maslow, and is described in a book, Organization and Management, A Systems and Contingency Approach, by Fremont E. Kast and James E. Rosenzweig.  This concept offered an alternative to viewing human motivation as a group or series of relatively separate and distinct drives.  The concept viewed higher-order needs becoming important only after certain “lower” needs were satisfied to some personally acceptable level.

These needs, progressing upward to a higher order, as described by Maslow, were: Physiological (hunger, thirst, the activity-sleep cycle, sex, and evacuation), Security (protection against danger, threat, and deprivation), Social (associations with others, belonging to groups, and giving and receiving friendship and affection), Esteem (self-respect, respect of others, and ego or status needs), and Self-Actualization (achieving the potential within oneself, maximum self-development, creativity, and self-expression).  Each of us can measure our own lives and needs against this concept to determine or measure the relative importance of each of these need-levels to our own situation and how it has influenced our lives.  However, please note that this is only one of several theories of how we react to the forces that impact our lives at home, at work, and in society at large.

The needs hierarchy may also be viewed as a “value” structure.  As one moves up or down the structure, changing values are reflected in the elements of each level.  In the language of economics theory, the various levels and their elements have a changing “utility” to us. This change in utility will likely be reflected in our personal and family budgets and the way we allocate our resources.  There is substantial variation within each level for the individual, based on the individual’s perceptions, experiences, goals, and other influences.  Broad participation in our blogs should enhance the examination of our own system of values and influence those of other participants.

The Story of Life

This is a short version of LIFE, told in a simplified form which can be used to instruct even small children.

At a point in time, determined by God, a soul is given to each human being. I believe that parents have a responsibility for that soul until such time as the child reaches the age of accountability. That age differs from person to person. At some point in time, each individual must take personal responsibility for his or her own soul. This is a grave responsibility because the soul has only two possible destinations; one – to be with Jesus or the other to be with Satan, when the body wears out or is otherwise destroyed. Please recognize that the body is merely a vehicle used to transport the soul from place to place. The body is designed to wear out at some time, whereas the soul is eternal. If a person fails to take good care of the body, that person dooms the soul to an early exit from the earth.

Let it be noted that each soul is given a mission by the Holy Spirit and also gives talents (or gifts) by which to accomplish its mission. If the individual fails to develop the talents or gifts provided to it, the soul’s mission cannot be accomplished. So you see, each person has a tremendous responsibility. This is a point I fear that many people fail to understand about life.

Why are we put here in the first place? Why, of course, to please and to fellowship with God. He does not need anything from us. He created us for His own good pleasure. If we do not commune with Him, we are the losers for not having done so. We must realize that we are not here for our own pleasure. We are here on a mission.

Now, if a person accepts Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, the Holy Spirit comes to dwell in that person’s heart. It is called Salvation – then the soul goes to be with Jesus when the body ceases to function (dies). If a person does not accept Christ as Lord and Savior, the soul is condemned to eternal separation from God. What a terrible thing to contemplate. What an awesome responsibility we have.

Remember that no one can make the decision for you. The decision to accept or reject Christ will be made. Some say they never have made a decision, but failing to make a positive decision is a decision to reject Him. One cannot have it both ways.

salvation1Remember also that no one can earn his or her way to heaven. Salvation is a gift (called Grace) from God, bought by the shed blood of Jesus on Calvary’s cross. The Bible is very explicit in stating Christ’s words, “No one comes to the Father but through Me.” He is The Way, The Truth and The Light.

The above explanation, “THE STORY OF LIFE,” was provided by Mr. William G. Bagby on June 19, 2015. I assume that he is the Author.  This is a part of his ministry.
