What Is Self-Actualization and Is it Biblical?

“I’m just going to be myself.”“I’m being my own authentic self.”“I can’t help the way I feel.”“I’m following my heart.”“I can manifest my own destiny.”There comes a point when the idea of becoming authentically YOU is overrated. You’ve probably heard these comments come up in conversation when it comes to self-actualization. It’s become a popular concept in this generation in how we live, what decisions we make, and who we want to become.

He was more known for being a carpenter than He was for being the Son of God.Perhaps that is why so many people had difficulty reconciling Jesus, the carpenter, with Jesus the Son of God who did miracles in the workplace. Jesus didn’t separate the work he did with his hands or head from the work he did with his heart.His job was his ministry. And your job is, too. Here are 3 reasons we can see our work life as integral to our faith life:Photo Credit: ©Unsplash/Daniel Mccullough
