Living Out Our Calling
I think we often create an artificial dichotomy in which we divide what is “spiritual” and what is “secular.” We don’t leave work to go do ministry. Our work is the best opportunity we have for living out our calling and for engaging in true ministry. What we’re doing on Thursday tells much more about how we can serve others well than seeing how we spend a few minutes on Sunday morning. A 20-yr-old listener’s question frames this episode.

Hi, this is Dan Miller – and yes you’re listening to the 48 Days Radio show – where each week we take 48 minutes to dive into real life questions about finding your passion, deciding what kind of life you want to live – and then finding or creating work that allows you to show up every day, excited to be able to do something that is meaningful, fulfilling – and profitable. This is where normal, indecision and ambiguity come to die. Welcome to the 48 Days Radio Show.
Should I do what I want or what God wants me to do?
How can I build a name for myself without being egotistical?
I love selling real estate but feel like I should be doing more Godly work.
If God has a calling and purpose for me does that mean I have to be a pastor or missionary?
I feel guilty because the work I’m most passionate about is not Godly.
