Beginning in chapter 12 Paul discussed how Christians are to live. In Romans 12:1 Paul urges the Christians: “in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God.” Paul continuously reminds the people to live above reproach and renew their minds so that they do not become part of the world. In the entire book of Romans Paul discusses the topic of how we as Christians should live, but Moo makes a great point in our book of how chapter 12 is a more in depth teaching on this matter.

Every human being has needs, starting with the physical need of breathing in order to sustain life, to the psychological to achieve goals. Humanistic psychologist Abraham Maslow categorized these needs into levels, known as Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. This essay will define and discuss Maslow’s theory, also how the hierarchy applies to me. Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs are prioritized into five different levels.
