The God Who Cares

Beyond all the games we won, beyond all the honors and accolades, I’ve just had so much fun being able to play this game. My motivation coming in to every single day is to run the race in such a way that honors God, and the passions and the talents that He’s given me. And when I’m rooted in that, I’m in a great place. I’m able to play freely. I’m able to love my teammates. I’m able to be a better man, a better football player, a better husband, a better father.

The gospel assures me that God cares about everything I do and will listen to my prayers. He may not answer them the way I want, but if he doesn’t it’s because He knows things I do not. My degree of success or failure is part of his good plan for me. God is my source of strength and perseverance.

The gospel reminds us that God cares about the products we make, the companies we work for, the customers we serve. He not only loves us, but also loves the world and wants us to serve it well. My work is a critical way in which God is caring for human beings and renewing his world. God gives us our vision and our hope.

The gospel gives meaning to our work. We’re supposed to treat all people and their work with dignity. We’re to create an environment in which people can flourish and use their God-given gifts to contribute to society. We’re to embody grace, truth, hope, and love in the organizations we create and the work we do.

— Tim Keller

  • Adversity

    Adversity is a severe instructor, set over us by the One who knows us better than we do ourselves, as He loves us better, too. He that wrestles with us strengthens our nerves and sharpens our skill. Our antagonist is our helper. This conflict with difficulty makes us acquainted with our object, and compels us…
