The modern world is more healthy, more wealthy, and more free than any other time in human history; yet again and again we see that we’re less happy and more anxious than we’ve ever been.

Two thousand years ago, there was a Jewish rabbi who predicted that all of this would happen. He said that worldliness—the deceitfulness of wealth and the cares of this world—would have a way of making us feel like we’re being choked.

His solution was to call us to a life that is entirely ordinary, yet never typical—a life of substance. A sweaty, yet profoundly joyful work. Come, find the supernatural strength you have been given in Christ to stand like a mountain in the rains of worldliness.
