Where are You Spreading the Dirt?

If you spend any time browsing through the titles of Tim Keller's sermons, you'd think that he rarely talks about faith in the workplace.  However, spend some time listening to his sermons (on the Gospel in Life podcast among other sources) and you'll find that he talks about faith and work quite a bit.  His sermon, "A World of Idols" is a great example of this.

Starting with Why: The Four-Part Gospel

Faith-and-work content consistently beats the drum of affirming that marketplace vocations are as important to God as professional ministry. That message is crucial, as resources like this one give those of us with non-church giftings the confidence to pursue our callings. But we can’t stop there. Even if all believers in the marketplace one day know that our vocations matter, we still need to understand why. Otherwise we may run successful businesses guilt-free, but miss the motivation and focus that come from knowing our place in God’s story.

Who are our Heroes?
