A friend in Bible study recently said she desperately wanted to know her calling. She looked around our group, “God made you a Bible teacher,” she said to me. She pointed to the friend next to her and said, “God made you good at many things. I don’t do anything. What does God want me to do?”

It’s easy to compare ourselves with others and come up short. Every Christ follower is called to represent Him in our sphere of influence (2 Cor. 5:21). The response of the group showed that what was hidden from our friend was obvious to the rest of us. Christ’s mercy and love virtually flow from our compassionate sister. She hadn’t seen that loving others in tangible ways was part of her calling.

Since humankind’s fall in the Garden of Eden, we’ve all struggled to find a sense of significance. We want to know our lives matter. We think our success in life is connected to being outstanding in a particular area. Well, it is. But the trait Jesus highlights may surprise you. Continue Reading

I love the visuals you use to illustrate your point. 

Thank you for this beautiful reminder to live first to serve others in a "sphere of influence" and to do that with the gift God placed in us, instead of trying to copy others.

What a wonderful post Debbie! Beautiful and so encouraging. Watching all my daughter in law and son do for the new little baby and how exhausting it is makes me love them all the more. I did all the same things but I don’t honestly remember the exhaustion now – just the joy and I know they will too. I love the way you called managing a household a place of influence. I wrote an e-book called Entrepreneurs for Eternity talking about how moms are just that! I wish you a truly blessed and beautiful Mother’s Day my friend.
