You’re not defined by what you do for a living. Your higher purpose is about living out your calling and reflecting the aspects of God’s character He built uniquely into you.
Our purpose in this world is to honor God and help other people see Him more clearly.
You can do that if you’re a plumber, an insurance agent, a stay-at-home-mom, a literary agent, a bestselling author, or a retired garbage man.
But in order to do that, you have to understand your calling, and how very different that is from your occupation.
It’s a tough world out there. People lose jobs, they become disabled, they miss out on opportunities or fail to get into certain schools. And if those things happen, you can be crushed and feel adrift if you think you’re defined by your job.
