Thoughts on Vocation...



The first time I ever heard of the concept of vocation was in college. Without using the actual term, someone once told me that Christians should strive to praise God in daily activities. Especially in the things often seen as mindless, boring and not very spiritual - like washing the dishes. At that point in my life, I had immersed myself in the evangelical world of self-sanctification, especially through activities like witnessing, waving my arms in praise, planning for mission trips, etc. This new concept of vocation (serving God in daily life through the gifts and places He's given you) seemed strange, intriguing. Not surprisingly, I wouldn't hear more of it until leaving evangelicalism.
