These days it’s called “blood thinner”—a prescription medicine used widely to save or prolong life. A few decades ago, the same compound went by “rat poison.” That’s right: the prescription used today by millions, can also (in higher doses) shrink the rodent population.

This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. Almost no activity or pursuit is so good that it can’t be overdone. Hard work is good. So is leisure.

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.
