One day a boy walked into a drugstore and asked to use the phone. He dialed a number and said, "Dr. Brown, do you need a boy to mow your lawn and run errands?" He listened, then said, "Oh, you have a boy you like? All right, thank you."
When the youngster hung up, the druggist said, "Just a minute, son! I can give you work."
The boy said, "Thanks, but I have a job."
The druggist said, "But weren't you just on the phone asking for work?"
"No sir," The boy answered, "I work for Dr. Brown. I was just checking up on myself."
This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. To be sharp, to be up on the job, we also must check up on ourselves . . . in the high calling of our daily work.
The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold,
but man is tested by the praise he receives.
TheHighCalling.org seeks to create opportunities for Christian leaders to encounter God through new media tools for the transformation of daily life, work, and our world. Christian leaders are in all aspects and activities of daily life—including home, community, leisure, as well as occupation.
