RADIO PROGRAM No. 67 - A Christian Answer to Overwork

HOST: If our forefathers could see the labor-saving devices we now enjoy, they'd probably think that nobody today could feel overworked. But many a hard-pressed businessman and harried housewife would tell them differently.

An article in Harper's Magazine described a rather typical businessman in this way: "He apparently gets satisfaction from hard work—he spends two-thirds of his evenings on business matters. He earns a comfortable salary and has no money worries. But he is a troubled man, uneasy that his life is being impoverished by the demands of his job. 'Nearly everything I do from one week to the next is an obligation,' he said. 'At this rate I'm going to be dried up in another ten years.'" (Sabbaticals for Businessmen by Richard B. McAdoo, Harper's Magazine.)
