Good Will Working

Audio / Produced by The High Calling


Matt Damon plays the title role in the movie Good Will Hunting. At one point, Will's therapist challenges him to accept his math genius and use it. But Will resists. He says, "I don't see anything wrong with laying brick; that's somebody's home I'm building. Or fixing somebody's car; somebody's gonna get to work the next day 'cause of me. There's honor in that."

These are worthy jobs, honorable work. But that wasn’t the point. The therapist wanted Will to face up to his fears and fully use his talent.

This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. All work done to the glory of God is honorable work. But don’t let fear stop you short of your potential . . . in the high calling of our daily work.
