Intrinsic Worth

There’s a great interview with Glynn Young at The High Calling’s new Young Professionals channel, addressing issues that Young has encountered throughout his career. I found this bit especially interesting:

Because this was the 1970s, and women were just beginning to break into the business professions, they were still treated as second-class citizens. As a young Christian who didn’t know any better, to me they were my colleagues. I didn’t think of them as ‘lesser’ than I was. It’s interesting, but this was one thing I somehow knew in my 20s that carried forward throughout my career. I learned to value people for their intrinsic worth, not for their title or position. And I believe this came from my faith, because I understood that we are all made in God’s image.
