I love this quote – I copied it down a long time ago**, actually, and just came across it again today. What a great reminder of what’s really important at work, in a career, in the office. This way of work does not come naturally to me…
“…a way of work that does not acquire things or amass possessions, but responds to God and develops relationships. People are at the center of Christian work…The character of our work is shaped not by accomplishments or possessions but in the birth of relationship…we invest our energy in people.” -E.H. Peterson
Do you agree? Is this what God wants us to focus on at work?
