What do you do for a living? Whether you have a great answer to that question ("I have an important job!") or a not-so-great answer ("I'm unemployed!"), the problem of defining ourselves by what we do instead of who we know, means that our self-worth is tied to our performance, instead of who we are as a son or daughter of God.

Justin unpacks how our ideas about work affect how we think about ourselves and others. Instead of work being a ladder to self-worth that we are either climbing up or falling off of, Justin describes a third way where work, even work in a broken world, is a part of what it means to be made in the image and likeness of God, and a tool to help us grow in our love for God and others.
