The Value of Work

By | February 16, 2007

Interesting quotes by Peter Robinson, former speechwriter for Ronald Reagan:

“The value of work lay not in the kind of social position it provided or, beyond the obvious need to cover the bills, in the amount it paid. The value of work lay in allowing you to develop your talents and build up your character.”

“Work is the way human beings worship God by collaborating with him in the ongoing process of creation.”

    “Work is the way human beings worship God by collaborating with him in the ongoing process of creation.”

    I love it! Reminds me of Eugene Peterson’s perception of worship. As the bell rings, it worships. It fulfills its purpose.

    I love Peter Robinson. How Ronald Reagan Changed my Life is one of my favorite books.
