Some of life’s BIG questions include: “Who am I?” “What is the meaning of life?” “Where am I going?” and “What am I here for?”
That last question is an important one. It taps into our purpose, our calling, our life contribution, our vocation. After all, everyone wants to be useful. No one wants to be useless.
And I’m not talking about just having a job so you can pay the bills and have some money to spend on the weekend.
Deep inside very human being is a longing to make a difference in the world. To do something … significant. Sure, not everyone will be prominent, but we can all make a unique contribution to society. That can be quite rewarding and fulfilling.
So how do we know our life purpose?
A few extra questions can help: “What are you good at (your talents and gifts)? What do you love to do? What makes you angry? What does the world need?”
It’s worth taking some time to reflect on questions like this because we only have one life to live. This is not a dress rehearsal. This is the real thing!
Vocation – think about it.
