One of “Those” Jobs

Audio / Produced by The High Calling


Laura had one of “those" jobs: a workplace hostile to her faith. She had a boss who called Christians phonies. And coworkers who delighted in creating opportunities for her to turn the other cheek. She did turn the other cheek. Time and again. She thought: one day this is going to break me, wear me down. But that didn’t happen. Laura didn’t look for trouble…but when trouble found her, increasingly it found a woman growing through trials.

This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. Consider it "pure joy," James writes, when you face trials of faith. In other words, for believers, the worst days on the job can be the best days of our Christian walk…through the high calling of our daily work.
