What is the interrelationship between Maslow’s “Hierarchy of Needs” and a Biblical Christian worldview? It is all a matter of perspective and priority in today’s American culture.
The Main Thing
Truly our most pressing need is not even on Maslow’s “Hierarchy of Needs” list. God places a vacuum in the heart of mankind. We may try to fill that emptiness with a life full of toys, safety, entertainment, and relationships. However, the only One who can truly fill that void is Christ. And, all we have to do to bring Him into our lives is to ask Him and accept His Lordship.
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. - Ephesians 2:8-9
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. - Romans 10:9
