The Job of Book

Whoa. (emphasis mine)

Ground floor opportunity for an experienced copywriter who has written successful direct mail fund raising appeals for Christian organizations. Fund Raising Strategies seeks a talented copywriter with strong list knowledge and extensive para-church connections. Must have a Colossians 3:23 commitment to excellence and be someone who enjoys working with others. Responsibilities include developing and writing for a new fund raising division serving Christian organizations. Send resume and writing samples to Bruce Eberle, FRS, 1420 Spring Hills Rd., #490, McLean, VA 22102 or

Colossians 3:23:

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, 24since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

I'm trying to think if there's a secular or even achristian equivalent to this. "A Will to Power commitment to excellence," perhaps?

...[E]very specific body strives to become master over all space and to extend its force (--its will to power:) and to thrust back all that resists its extension. But it continually encounters similar efforts on the part of other bodies and ends by coming to an arrangement ("union") with those of them that are sufficiently related to it: thus they then conspire together for power. And the process goes on...
