If I go into my backyard and work hard 14 hours a day to dig a big hole, what good will that do? Surely, I’ll be doing more work than probably anybody in this room. I’d be working hard. And hard work is rewarding, or so our culture tells us. But I don’t need a big hole. My work would be useless. All my energy would be wasted. Well, any work that we do that is not done in light of eternity, is like digging holes. In the end it will be useless. Our life’s work, our careers, cannot be our fulfillment or our life, but can only be a means to achieve our true purpose. Our work cannot be the end, but is instead only a means to the end.
