How great would it be if someday conversations at Rotary or Kiwanis Clubs would go like this:

Business Owner A: “You are going to be so envious: I just had a Christian apply for my latest job opening, and I am so looking forward to hiring this person. You can count on Christians: they work hard, they put in a day’s work for a day’s pay, they encourage the others on the job, they’re honest, they really care about our customers—”

Business Owner B (interrupting): “Wow. You’re right, I am envious. I’d hire more Christians in a minute! You know, they even lift me up. They help me realize that what we do in our business really makes a difference.”

I don’t think that conversation happened at your local Rotary this morning. There’s a lot to be said about faith at work, and about stewardship in general, which covers a lot more ground than the usual church pledge drive.

Stewardship is a high biblical theme, one that I’ll be focusing on more and more here as I devote increasing attention to Christianity in the marketplace.

In the meantime, dream with me of that day at the Rotary Club….
