Three aspects in discerning your vocation

Your vocation is a part of God’s work in the world, and God gives you resources for serving the human community. These factors can help you identify your calling.

  1. Affinity—“Look out.” Affinity is the normal, existential/priestly way to discern call. What people needs do I vibrate to?
  2. Ability—“Look in.” Ability is the normal, rational/prophetic way to discern call. What am I good at doing?
  3. Opportunity—“Look up.” Opportunity is the normal, organizational/kingly way to discern call. What do the leaders/my friends believe is the most strategic kingdom need?
