Do Truck Drivers Matter to God?  Can the work of a florist, realtor, and truck driver be as meaningful to God as the work of a pastor, missionary, or humanitarian relief worker? Paul Rude says, “absolutely.”

Monday-Friday: Why the Rest of Your Week Matters to God Nathan Clarke and Corey Widmer believe the church has done a fine job equipping Christians for the “private” areas of their lives (prayer, morality, family life), but a poor job equipping people for the “public” parts of their lives (their work and vocation).
