Finally, point one is the foundation of any truly Christian view of work. In the world, work is often viewed as something we do ultimately for ourselves. Of course, self-interest is not wrong in itself. We work for the good of everyone cf. Jeremiah , which applies to us as Christians because we are in exile, 1 Peter — especially the good of the customers our organization services.

This means that it is not enough to simply work in order to make the sale or get the paycheck. We have to work in such a way that people will truly be benefited. If doing our work in a certain way will earn the money, but not truly benefit the other person perhaps by cutting corners on quality , we are not doing our work in a Christian way. If more people worked this way, the entire world would be a better place. Excellence, integrity, discipline, creativity, and passion in the workplace all matter and are to be done as acts of worship — not just self interest. We are able to — and called to — serve God through the secular arena as well as the ministry arena.
