Despite all of our different backgrounds and life experiences, we all share some important things in common. We all have the same basic needs as human beings. These common needs are physical, emotional, and spiritual.
We all need joy, peace, and a purpose for our lives. Addressing these emotional and spiritual needs is just as crucial as addressing our physical needs for food, sleep, and a place to live. Having joy in our lives fills us with a sense that God is in control of our lives no matter what is going on in them. Having peace provides us with emotional and spiritual tranquility through a healthy relationship with God. Having a purpose for our lives energizes us, enables us to focus, and infuses our daily activities with meaning.
We also all yearn to enjoy lives filled with meaning, love, and laughter. We strongly desire to find meaning in our lives, to experience God, and to be loved by Him. We long to live a satisfying life that pleases God and makes a positive impact on the world.
