Work with GodAudio / Produced by The High Calling
A preacher driving down a country road came upon a prosperous farm. Its buildings, fences, and roads weren't new, but they sparkled with order and upkeep. The garden was tended. The fields were well tilled. In the pasture grazed a fine herd of dairy cattle.
Then the preacher saw the farmer riding atop a big, shiny tractor. The preacher shouted, "My good man, God has certainly blessed you with this magnificent farm!"
The farmer looked around and said, "Yes, he has, and we're grateful. But you should have seen this place when he had it all to himself!"
This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. God delivers all the raw materials—nature, intelligence, and physical strength. The daily upkeep is up to us . . . in the high calling of our daily work.
The horse is made ready for the day of battle,
but victory rests with the LORD.
