Work of sanctification

Gill again, stating the obvious: “Neither those who dominate and lead our industrialism – that is our bankers and financiers – nor those thousands and millions of men and women who are its more or less irresponsible instruments – neither, that is to say, the masters nor the men, are moved, inspired, by the notion that the object of working is sanctification, and that the work done, the things made have for their primary reason of being a collaboration with God in creating, and that is to say a collaboration with God in His praise of Himself. ┬áNor have either masters or men any idea that the most important product of their factories is the men and women who work in them – that all things made are made to minister to persons and therefore partake of the nature and end of personality.”
