It’s Not a Job, It’s a Calling

As we continue in our series “The Great Recovery,” we are talking about the six basic beliefs that can rebuild a nation. And we’ve come to a third basic belief.  And that is, simply, that work is a calling.  It’s not just a job, it’s not just a way to pay your bills, it’s a way to be in the world.

We talked about what’s gone wrong.  Why is work something that we dread?  Why are so many people unemployed, waiting for someone to give them a job when in all of history we’ve been self-employed?  We haven’t waited for a corporation or a government, or some force outside ourselves to do for ourselves what God has called us to do.  And that is, work.  We talked about the difference between calling and just working for a living.

To find your calling is to find your F.I.T.T. in the world.  And before you can stand out, you have to find out where you fit in.  So today we asked four basic questions.

  1. What is fulfilling for you?
  2. What is inspiring to you?
  3. What are the talents that you can develop into skills?
  4. What is your temperament that allows you to sustain your calling?

It’s time to take your life back and move into your calling.  This talk will give you practical, hands-on advice and teaching on how to do it. You have no excuse not to get started.  And the sooner you do, the better off we’ll all be.
