Intentional Christian Ep 2: Common Callings

20 Apr

 

Here’s where I think the problem is with the current way we view calling. I think we have mixed understanding our strengths and abilities with discovering purpose. As Christians we all have the same purpose, “to do what pleases God.” (Phil 2:13) Period. End of story. Calling and purpose are not about a specific job, they are about a way of life. When we mix our pursuit of the things we’re good at – our strengths and abilities – with our desire to live a meaningful life, we end up robbing our purpose of its glory and power. The idea that a calling is a job is so limiting. A job can be part of your calling, but your calling should determine the way you interact with your kids just as much as the way you interact with your customers.

What do you think? Do you agree that calling isn’t about a job but a way of life? Comment below and continue the discussion…
