Here's something I've been wondering about. I'll tell you up front: I haven't done any sorts of research nor have I formed any firm opinions. I'm curious and I thought I'd mine the depths of the collective knowledge of you, my readers. And, if I'm honest, I sincerely hope I'll actually get some response here so that 1) I might learn something and 2) I won't look foolish for asking a question and then getting no answers. So, be a good sport and answer me, okay?
Here's what I'm wondering: what Biblical support is there for the idea of a specific vocational calling? I don't read many blogs by men but I have noticed among women bloggers there is some talk of being called to be this or that, sometimes expressed with joy and excitement, sometimes with frustration and uncertainty. I'm curious about what the Scripture has to say about seeking (and finding) a specific calling. When someone says they are supposed to be a _________ or do __________, how do they know, Biblically? How does the Bible address seeking one's purpose/destiny/calling/dream?
Remember: I have no agenda other than curiosity.
So, what are you thoughts on callings?
