“Amos answered Amaziah, ‘I was neither a prophet nor the son of a prophet, but I was a shepherd, and I also took care of sycamore-fig trees.’” (Amo 7:14)
When we go to a party or meet strangers in a networking event, we are often asked the question, “What do you do?” We can identify with what we do, and there is nothing really wrong with that.
What about if we were in a room full of fulltime church workers? Maybe there are many missionaries, pastors, priests, and social and charity workers there. How would we feel about our profession then? Would we place our vocation on some kind of spiritual pecking order?
The truth is that God has called us each to play a role in His kingdom. You have a sacred calling to do what you do. There is no hierarchy of callings; each is anointed, appointed, and placed in a specific role for a definitive, God-ordained purpose.
Quick Prayer: Thank You for what I do, which is ordained by You. Amen.
