The Work of the Holy Spirit

In the second grade, we had a standing assignment to write a “morning story,” a short story about whatever we did the night before, that we would read to the class the following morning.  I dreaded that assignment; instead of writing about what I did, I would write about what I wanted to do, where I wanted to go.  This frustrated my teacher to no end. He was so frustrated that he called my mother in for a parent-teacher conference. 

Jesus Ministered to Their Needs

“Needs,” what does that mean? Look up the definition of the word and you will find a statement like this one: “Something that is necessary.” As humans, what do we need? What is necessary? In the field of psychology a theory proposed by Abraham Maslow, and still espoused today, ranks our needs as human beings.  Needs take the form of a pyramid and build from basic up to self-actualization.  Basic human needs according to this ranking are food, shelter, friendship, love, and security.
