Career vs Calling

I heard this talk from Perry Noble, Founder and Senior Pastor of NewSpring Church, recently and I just had to share it with you. He started off his talk by saying “someone is going to lose their job today.” And then he went on to list the 12 main differences between a person with a job and a person with a calling. My hope is that, after you have read this post, you too would lose your job. Okay let’s begin.

1) A person with a job is a distraction. A person fulfilling a calling takes action.

2) A person with a job is controlled by fear. A person fulfilling a calling is controlled by faith.

3) A person with a job is a consumer. A person fulfilling a calling is a contributor.

4) A person with a job needs to know everything. A person fulfilling a calling needs to know the main thing.

5) A person with a job says “I can’t believe I have to.” A person fulfilling a calling says “I can’t believe I get to.”

6) A person with a job thinks “These people are blessed to have me.” A person fulfilling a calling thinks “I’m blessed to have    these people.”

7) A person with a job will fight in tough times. A person fulfilling a calling will fight through tough times.

8) A person with a job assumes the worst in people. A person fulfilling a calling assumes the best in people.

9) A person with a job blames others. A person fulfilling a calling accepts responsibility.

10) A person with a job is jealous of the success of others. A person fulfilling a calling celebrates the success of others.

11) A person with a job makes excuses. A person fulfilling a calling makes a difference.

12) A person with a job is skeptical of others. A person fulfilling a calling believes in others.

When you’re fulfilling a calling, God will always provide your needs. Working a job is dangerous, but fulfilling a calling changes everything.

So, with that in mind, let me ask you. Are you working a job or are you fulfilling the calling that God has on your life?
