Life Essentials

Philippians 4:19 (AMP)‬ "And my God will liberally supply (fill until full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus."

Life essentials. What could you live without? Your cell phone? Your computer?Your car? Your pet? Well, yes, you could live without those. So many things we think are life essentials, but are not.

Most of us require three basic needs: food, shelter, and clothing. Food and water the most important for survival. For some in tropical climates, shelter and clothing could be minimal. I always said if I am to be homeless, let it be somewhere where it's warm in the winter.

My husband Pat, a former Marine, said all he'd need is a tent along Mad River and he could survive. This could be true because of all he endured while in Vietnam. But, I am sure he wouldn't want his survival skills tested and neither do I, especially at our age!

One Internet app gave 7 essentials for life, according to Abraham Maslow.


No offense Abraham, but let's go with what God offers which are those 7 and more! We need God and the love of family...all the rest is added. Your spiritual essential of life is just as needed as your physical needs. As God gives you every essential...He supplies us with our needs in life.

‭Psalms 145:15-16 (AMP)‬ "The eyes of all look to You [in hopeful expectation], And You give them their food in due time. You open Your hand And satisfy the desire of every living thing."

‭John 10:10 (AMP)‬ "The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows]."
