Jesus Christ vs. Abraham Maslow (Seek the Kingdom First)

By Daniel Kolenda  /     Oct 15, 2015  /     Articles, Devotional, LIVE Before You Die, Teachings, Video, Videos  /     0 Comment

In Matthew 6:33 Jesus instructs us to, “Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.” This seems counter intuitive. Humans are programed to seek first their physical needs. According to the famous Psychologist Abraham Maslow, spirituality can only become important after the more basic needs are met.” […]
