It’s A Calling, Stupid

 

God’s Work and Ours: An Interview with Timothy Keller

People are looking for the more fulfilling thing.

People say, “I’d like a job that’s just a little more exciting to me, and better paying.”

If you produce something that makes people’s lives better, even if it’s a rather boring process to do it, you’re doing God’s work, you are caring for God’s creation.

Why does it have to be, why does the process have to be incredibly fulfilling when you know you are doing something that helps people?

We’ve lost the idea of [a] calling, we are looking now at work as a way of fulfillment.
