I’ve long been a hardcore apple user- I learned to read (literally! with reader rabbit) on an old SE-30 at the tender age of four and never looked back. Like most of the world I was saddened to hear of Steve’s death this past week. Just a few weeks ago James and I were discussing our long-term career goals and dreams and we talked about this quote:

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking.

Don’t settle.

As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it.

Don’t settle.”

Jobs was an incredibly talented man who undoubtedly changed the world. He was also a though-provoking example of the truth that all men are created in God’s image and, whether they choose to accept Him or not, they bear that image. May we as believers seek to develop and use our gifts as intentional image-bearers.
