Your Job Can Be Sacred

Audio / Produced by The High Calling


The English writer, Dorothy Sayers, made an interesting comment about Jesus’s carpentry:

"No crooked table leg or ill-fitting drawer ever, I dare swear, came out of the carpenter shop at Nazareth. Nor, if they had, could anyone believe that they were made by the same hands that made heaven and earth."

Think of it: Jesus’ daily work revealed the divine character. His daily work showed God’s integrity.

This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. When you doubt your job is sacred or meaningful to God—look at God incarnate, sweating over a workbench with measure, hammer, and chisel. Trust the Carpenter who glorified His Father in all his tasks. It's the high calling of our daily work.

Jesus answered, "The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent." (John 6:29)
