... motivation Behaviours that are driven by rewards experienced internally. These might include the satisfaction of completing a task, a sense of achievement, or finding something interesting. This form of motivation is internal to the individual, as they are naturally energized to engage in these behaviours regardless of any extrinsic (external) reward such as pay or promotion. Having self-motivated employees is highly desirable. However, some studies have shown that when extrinsic rewards are expected and not forthcoming, intrinsic motivation can...

... motivation Motivation derived from engaging in a sport for its own sake, for the satisfaction and the sheer enjoyment that it brings, and for no other reason. Such intrinsic motivation is often associated with great persistence and high levels of achievement. It is thought to be reflected by an athlete's motive to achieve success and to be roughly equivalent to self-confidence and self-efficacy . Compare extrinsic motivation...

...purity, the form and value of motivation for all acts in life or culture. This cannot but come from the desire to achieve a higher level of divine appreciation, toward the ultimate completion of the sense of purity—the “consent” or rida of God Himself. Indeed the motivation, desire, and inclination to attain the good, the pure, and the true are qualities intrinsic to man because of his humanity. In accordance with his fitra or “original nature” which is pure, man is intrinsically inclined to that which is holy (...

...was a supporter of the nationalist Iranian Prime Minister, Mohammad Mossaddeq. In his view, Islamic economics is sui generis . It is based neither on the unfettered freedom of the individual nor on the collective ownership of property. It is instead rooted in the human being’s intrinsic freedom, a freedom that is, however, contingent upon the community’s need for equity in human relationships. The individual is entitled to own the product of his labor, but Taliqani asserts that the ruler of an Islamic government can restrict this right when it conflicts with...

...to be performed to music rather than merely recited—is lost to us. Fortunately, in the newly minted traditions of Zionism and modern Israel, many of the songs of the Song have been set to music afresh. I grew up on this music, these lyrics: for me they are inseparable—and intrinsically secular. References Bloch, A., and Bloch, C.

...to the relevant public (here ‘the communities of God’) either because he is intrinsically linked to the Thessalonians' endurance and faith as their progenitor, or because he is closely connected with the Thessalonian Christ-followers who now exhibit these qualities, or both. Also see 1 Thess 2:19; 2 Cor 9:2–3 . The presence of persecutions and oppressions among whatever group of Christ-followers for which 2 Thessalonians was originally destined provides either the motivation for, or reinforcement of, narratives of future deliverance of the sort prominent...

...‘Fullness’ ( v. 19 ). Only in 2:9 do we discover that ‘Fullness’ is a surrogate for God, who is said to ‘dwell in’ both people ( T. Zeb. 8:2 ; Jub. 1:17 ; 1 Enoch 49:2–3; cf. 2 Cor 6:16 ) and places (LXX Ps 67:17 ). No Jew would have understood either as meaning intrinsic divinization. It is simply a way of speaking about divine favour. What the Colossians would have understood is an open question, as is the exact manner in which Christ can be both the instrument and end of reconciliation. In what possible sense can all creation, which includes...

...to be ‘as to the Lord’ ( 5:22 ) sets the whole relationship within the primary context of mutual discipleship ( cf. Mk 10:42–5 ). It is true that the placing of the relationship of husband and wife parallel to that of Christ and church ( 5:23–4 ) seems to set the wife in an intrinsically inferior status ( cf. 1 Cor 11:3 ). But that again reflects the ethos of the time (the marital law which treated wives as the property of their husbands was only changed in Britain in the 19th cent.). And the main thrust of what follows is clearly intended to transfuse and...

...the wrath of God ( v. 53 ). God's wrath in Numbers is impersonal in its basic sense; it ‘goes forth’ or ‘comes upon’ ( 16:46; 18:5 ). Wrath is not a legal penalty, or a divine decision, but inevitably issues from the deed as a matter of the moral order; it is an effect intrinsically related to, growing out of, the violation of the place of God's presence or the divine–human relationship (see num 14). God is not conceived in deistic ways, however, and sees to the movement from deed to consequence, in sometimes sharp language ( 11:33 ). The effect may be...

...the various laws in this section have hygiene as their basis. Although some of the laws of ritual purity roughly correspond to modern ideas of physical cleanliness, many of them have little to do with hygiene. For example, there is no evidence that the ‘unclean’ animals are intrinsically bad to eat or to be avoided in a Mediterranean climate, as is sometimes asserted. For a further discussion, see lev c.3–4. ( 11:1–47 ) describes the clean and unclean animals. Eating was very much involved with purity. Certain things were not to be eaten. The Israelite was...

...been divided in early Wisdom circles on the question of whether nature could be comprehended by the human mind. At the end of Job, a text dating probably to the fifth century bce which belongs fundamentally to the Wisdom tradition, the view seems to be taken that nature is intrinsically unknowable: it is deeply mysterious and beyond human comprehension, and the only human response possible to it is one of awe and praise of God's power ( Job 38:1–6 ). In Proverbs, however, which dates probably from roughly the same period, a very different position is taken....
