Work, Economics, and Ethics in Daily Life

Isn't it best - even "good stewardship" - to give work to others if it would take away from your "own" time? In a culture obsessed with enlarging "me-time" by minimizing the to-do list, here is one of the best Christian rejections of the "time is money" confusion of the modern world. "But I do assert," the author writes, "that to replace a profoundly human form of work simply because one could come out monetarily ahead, or even save time, is not in itself good. To do so might well be an instance of putting things above persons."
