A lot of our jobs aren’t much different. We certainly have it easier than did, say, the guys who dug the now discarded canals across our country. Imagine being a farmer in the early 20th century. Imagine being a craftsman around the same time. Both of these, the farmer and the craftsman, represent ideals of stewardship and discipline now missing from our culture.
