Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll

 

A Message for the Marketplace
by Charles R. Swindoll

Whatever your hand finds to do, 
do it with all your might.
Ecclesiastes 9:10

I'm just maverick enough to say that I think fewer Christians ought to be going into the ministry and more should be going into business and into occupations that have nothing to do with the vocational Christian service. 

I don't see life divided into public and private, secular and sacred. It's all an open place of service before our God. 

My hope is to see . . . a group of Christians who will infiltrate our society—in fact, our entire world—with a pure, beautiful message of grace and honesty in the marketplace.

Recently I had a delightful talk with a keen-thinking young man . . . at our church. As we visited, I asked him about his future plans. 

"Well, I've just graduated from law school," he said. When I asked about how he hoped to use his training, he said, "I want to be a man of integrity who practices law."

What refreshing words! They reflected the right priority.
