Digging in

Talking about worldview and the Christian’s task in the world is important, yet relatively easy.

As the old adage goes, “the devil is in the details.” Developing a Christian understanding of business, education, mathematics, science, or anything else is an ongoing challenge that Dordt encourages its faculty, students, and graduates to face throughout their lives.

Some of the ways we live our worldview are easy to identify as “Christian.” Dealing with others in caring and ethical ways, serving people in need, or talking about Christ’s love fall into this category. Other ways we live out a Christian worldview don’t immediately shout “Christian,” though. These can include looking past what are commonly accepted as “best practices” in today’s society and self-consciously thinking about how God’s call to justice, stewardship, respect, compassion, integrity, humility, and so much more shapes how we set up businesses, help set policies, design roads, drive cars, choose and do research, teach students, and do all the other things that fill our lives as citizens in today’s world.

Taking that call seriously remains a daily challenge but it can lead to exciting new ways to “act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God.”
