“How has the Church informed your work?” – Steve Norris

“How has the Church informed your work?” – Steve Norris October 3, 2012

In this video, Steve Norris, President of Norris Realty Advisors, talks with the folks over at The High Calling about how our daily work can have great Kingdom value.

TRANSCRIPT:

One of the church’s big failures is that they are silent about work to a large extent. A lot of what we do in our work has great Kingdom value, but it’s not the kind of stuff we learn in Church. It’s very different than that, and it’s much more subtle.

I think it was an evolutionary thing of realizing that I didn’t need to win 400 people for Jesus in my job; I didn’t need to have a Bible study at work every day to be of value. I could just really love people for who they were and enjoy them and help them to try and find joy in their work. So, I think all those things just happened when I stopped stressing out.

I think we play a numbers game in the Church a lot, and I don’t remember Jesus being about numbers very much, at least the parts I understand about who He is.
