Unless your retired… if you’re able to read this, you are probably either in school or have a job. You’re either in an occupation or your preparing for one. Whichever it is, that is your vocation.
Whether you’re in school or at work, you go somewhere… interact with others… and focus on a goal. You’re there for several hours, and while you’re “on the clock”, performing assigned duties and agreed-upon policies. Work and school have set start and end times… and then you go home or to other activities.
Again, whether school or work, that is your “vocation”. The Latin root word – actually Christian in origin – describes a “calling”. Your place at school or at work is your calling. You have a greater purpose there than simply earning a degree or earning money for a mortgage.
As a Christian, you are called to your vocation… and to treat that vocation as your mission. You’re called to your school or your workplace to live out your mission and ministry.
You might consider approaching your day with this mindset… and see what God can do through you.
