And He Saw That Work Is Good
Scott was known at the office for his work at church. Just one thing: he sometimes played his “religious” card to get out of work at the office.
A coworker called him on it. “Scott,” he said, “You think church work makes you a good person. But no one around here is praising your priorities when you cut out for church and leave extra work for us.”
This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. In Genesis, as God opened the Garden to Adam, he also put him to work. Your job isn’t second best to God’s plan; it’s smack in the middle of it. And your daily work performance is your daily statement of faith...in the high calling of our daily work.
