    Gospel-centered productivity is not achieved through using others, manipulating them, or leading them by force. Neither is it driven by a need to produce results to promote one’s own security or comfort.

    First, he locates the very basis of our identity in the power of promising:   Some people ask who they are and expect their feelings to tell them. But feelings are flickering flames that fade after every fitful stimulus. Some people ask who they are and expect their achievements to tell them. But the things we accomplish always leave a core of character unrevealed. Some people ask who they are and expect visions of their ideal self to tell them. But our visions can only tell us what we want to be, not what we are. Who are we? Smedes answers that we are largely who we become through making wise...
