One of the saddest things I encounter is a person without a life passion.
And one of the most exciting things I get to do is help people
discover their calling from God and start to live it out.
Thought I’d do a few posts on how to discover your calling…
How do you discover your calling? We’ve talked about a bunch of “heady” techniques, but here’s a more practical one: Experiment. Bob Buford, author of Halftime, suggests doing “low cost probes.” Basically, it’s finding ways to try a new “calling” on for size, without giving up your day job.
So perhaps you’re feeling called to becoming a teacher. Well, volunteer to teach in your church’s kid’s ministry and see if it feels right. Thinking God might want you to become a missionary? First go on a mission trip or two.
If you have an idea about what your calling might be, what low cost probes would allow you to kick the tires before you buy the car?
