The best way to serve others with our work is to "serve the work"

Reference

Dorothy Sayers, this spunky, rebellious British writer from half a century ago, said that the best way to serve others with our work is to “serve the work.”

Do one thing. And do one thing well . And do that one thing well as an act of service and love for the world and to the glory of God.

If you’re really good at whatever it is you do, you don’t need to tell the rest of us. We’ll know. Beautiful things don’t ask for attention.

  • Summary: excellence is enough to serve others
