A few weeks ago, I put out a post answering the question, “What work can I do best?” I wrote that instead of setting our hopes on our job as a source of fulfillment that aligns with a special call from God on our life, we need to simply and faithfully do whatever work is before us today. We can fulfill God’s call to faith and holiness right where we are, even if our work doesn’t feel particularly fulfilling.
Since then, a couple readers have pushed back on the way I framed things, and their thoughtfulness has led me to think through the question in new terms. So this post is “Take 2” of “What work can I do best?”
In Christ, we find unexpected opportunities to fulfill our longing for significance, but grounded in a reality that also makes sense of our suffering and unfulfilled dreams: the cross of Christ.
