002: Knowing God’s Will for Your Life – Vocation



It seems like the first 30 years of my life, I spent a lot of time asking what God’s plan was for us, discussing it with friends, or analyzing what He might be trying to tell me. 

When I discovered the Doctrine of Vocation, most of the pieces fell together and I started to understand God is less concerned about a 5 year plan and more concerned about the greatest commandment. 

In this episode, I make lots of references to Gene Veith – an expert and author on the doctrine of vocation. Also I pronounce his name about 3 different ways. Sorry about that. I quote him a couple times especially when I’m discussing what exactly the doctrine of vocation is. After listening I think I could have done a better job of referencing exactly which words are his. You should check out his books and articles and then you will know.
