Gary Ginter was a highly successful executive in the high-stakes world of futures and options trading. He and his wife, Joanna, chose a life of “downward mobility,” giving away much of their wealth and living and worshiping in inner-city Chicago. For the past 25 years, Gary has been running VAST Power Systems, a struggling start-up. It’s been a journey that has both deeply tested and strengthened their faith.
Reflecting on the Story
Connecting to your Work
Lord, help me to be faithful in every aspect of my work. Even if it is not successful by the world’s standards, I pray that you would be pleased with my work. Whether or not I accomplish what I set out to accomplish, help me to be obedient to you in every detail. May I desire to do your will more than I desire financial gain, a good reputation, or a position of power. May you be glorified in my work. Amen.
