I am not suggesting revolting or secretive ways, But I believe witnessing through action is just as important as witnessing through professing one’s belief. In Matthew 5:16, it states, “in the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:16, NIV). Christian educator’s classroom should embody principles that are reflective of a Christian worldview to implement a biblical worldview to support a Christian philosophy in education in a practical application. We must instill themes like love, wholeness, and responsibility of knowledge. Graham states, “biblical teachings concerning love, wholeness, and responsibility, as well as our experience of them in Christ, must be brought to bear on our studies and research” (Graham, 2009, 24).
What is a worldview, and why is it important? These are the questions we should ask ourselves when thinking about how we perceive the world around us.

Like occupational therapy, spirituality is very individualized, therefore the specific activity and its experience, context, and environment will relate to the “essence of the person and their inner motivator” (Bassett, Lloyd, and Tse, 2008). It has the potential to influence [an individual 's] overall health and structure human experience, beliefs, values, behavior, and illness patterns (Taylor et al., 2000). It can also “affect occupational performance and development throughout the lifespan” (Donica, 2008). These articles place spirituality/religion as a contributing quality of what makes up an individual and the occupations they engage in. Upon coming to understand this category of occupation, by way of literary review, I am able to use these definitions and the OTPF to define and describe my IADL, prayer, as a religious and/or spiritual

Meade’s views and ethics position is highly influenced by religion. In Meade’s view of ethics as contained in his writings entitled Mind Self and Society from the Standpoint of a Social Behaviorist, he states: “Or it may pass into those mystical experiences in religious life – communion with God.

Humans have always had a spiritual connection to the world around them, and through religion, they are able to better understand that connection. Religion has also served as a basis for a structured governing system.

Mahatma Gandhi had a strong impact on King Jr. As Gandhiji, he also considered his moral and social integrity as religious commitments. He believed God has a specific purpose on everyone’s life and human history is written
One thing that all religions have in common is that they help their believers to find meaning and comfort in the world by using some aspects from that particular religion.
