A Christian’s Attitude Toward Work

“William Carey was a shoe maker who applied to go as a foreign missionary. Someone asked him, ‘What is your business?’ meaning to humiliate him, because he was not an ordained minister. Carey answered, ‘My business is serving the Lord, and I make shoes to pay expenses.’ … Oh, that men were that kind of workers today—it would change the whole labor scene.”

J. Vernon McGee in Ephesians, Pasadena: Thru the Bible Books, 1977, p. 169.
