What is the big sin of your city? Tim Keller interviewed on NBC

Tim Keller’s new book Every good endeavour is the subject of conversation on an American TV breakfast show.

In essence the book explores how the gospel of Christ shapes our attitude to work. In the interview Keller says ‘When you make your work your identity you identify with your work and that means if you’re successful it destroys you because it goes to your head.  If you’re not successful it destroys you because it goes to your heart and it destroys your self-worth.

Faith gives you an identity that’s not in work or accomplishment and that gives you protection. If successful you stay humble if you’re not successful you have some ballast.
