“Jesus ate nothing during those days, and when the time was up he was hungry.” 1. WE ARE CREATED WITH BASIC NEEDS
The need for food – shelter – sex – sleep etc. are common to us all. We need them.
2. WE ARE GIVEN A SOUL TO MANAGE OUR BASIC NEEDS.
We have a soul which is our management system to control our basic needs.
A sick or damaged soul soon loses control of our basic needs.
3. ONE BASIC NEED MISMANAGED – LEADS TO LACK OF CONTROL OVER OTHER BASIC NEEDS.
Once your basic physical needs rebel against your soul control – others will join in demanding to be satisfied continually.
4. BASIC PHYSICAL NEEDS NEVER STOP DEMANDING TO BE SATISFIED.
Each physical need must be met and managed by the human soul.
Your will is part of your soul, and is your general manager in life.
If your will is ruled by negative attitudes and emotions, it will always give in and satisfy the demanding voices of your physical world.
5. IT IS HEALTHY TO REGULARLY BRING ANY PHYSICAL NEED BACK UNDER CONTROL
Learn to control your sleep.
Learn to control your speech.
Learn to control your sexual appetites
Learn to control your food appetites
Learn to control your consumption of alcohol
Learn to control your need for company
3 John 1.2
“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.”
