Human Beings Are Born With Three Crucial Needs
Psychologists tell us that every human being is born with three crucial needs for -
• SECURITY (to be loved unconditionally)
• SELF-WORTH (to feel valued as a person)
• SIGNIFICANCE (to have a sense of purpose/meaning to my life)
God Created Us With A God-shaped Hole Inside Us
These three crucial needs are no accident of evolution or genetics. God created us so these needs can only be fully met in a relationship with him.
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
CS Lewis, commenting on this universal human desire for something, or someone, who could fill the aching void we feel in our hearts wrote:
“If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.” ~ C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity, Harper Collins, 2001 136-137
