"Why Is Work Important?" - Scott Wesley

About This Video

Recently, the High Calling spoke with Scott Wesley, Program Instructor with The WorkFaith Connection, about why work is important to our calling.

It's not easy to connect the work we do with the work that God does. The things I do professionally are usually very specific, low-impact tasks that may be important for a project I am working on, but rarely do much to edify or improve anyone else's life.

What's the connection between the work of God, this creation we see unfolding around us in ways we can't even begin to fully understand, and these few small scrawlings of mine, this comparatively insignificant detail work that is a big part of most of our professional lives? I'm still working this out.

TRANSCRIPT: I think we're all created to work, and so if we are to step into the image of God or if we're created in his image, one of the things that he does is he works. He creates and he works. So, I think that we are at our best . . . We are the best version of ourselves when we're doing something that helps other people, when we're providing for our families, when we're working and supporting ourselves.
