The Interview

Audio / Produced by The High Calling


Bill, a recent college graduate, called his dream company for an interview. The company had no openings but invited Bill to come in.

On the day of the interview, Bill left home early. On the highway, he saw a stranded motorist and pulled over to help. The stranded motorist was soon on his way.

Arriving at the company, Bill took a seat in the reception area. When the receptionist called him to the interview, he entered a boardroom and saw one familiar face. The interviewer was the motorist Bill had rescued that morning. After a brief interview, Bill had a new job.

This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge, with a true story and a deceptively simple maxim: Character creates opportunity in the high calling of our daily work.

Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.

(James 3:13)
