Before choosing a career path, believers should ask themselves, “What gifts do I have, and how can I be useful to other people through my work?” pastor and author Tim Keller has advised.

During a recent desiringGod.org podcast, Keller, founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York, said that in this “consumeristic age,” people find their identity in the products and brands they consume — and jobs are “like that too.”

“There is just no doubt,” he said. “I see plenty of people taking jobs that really don’t fit. They don’t fit their talents very well, and very often the jobs don’t necessarily fulfill them because the jobs aren’t really helping people very much. But the jobs are high status, and people feel like ‘I need to be in that job so I can feel good about myself.’ It is an identity marker.”
