Jesus and Jobs

Jesus and Jobs

No matter where you go in the world there are two needs basic to every human being. Jesus and jobs. In this post I am going to focus on the latter.

A job is a ticket to housing, food and family. A job provides self-respect. It’s better than a hand-out. A good job blesses an entire family. It can contribute to a person’s sense of well being. It creates value in a community. It gives people stability. Communities with good jobs are healthier than those without it.

This is so basic that we often miss it.

I am out on the West coast where I am attending a board meeting for Positive Impact. This little organization is all about non-traditional ways of supporting the global Great Commission. A large part of the effort is directed at creating jobs through entrepreneurship and business development.

Think about the difference a good job has made in your life and you will understand why this is part and parcel of what it means to be a Kingdom-minded Christian.
