There’s excitement as people discover, discern, and accept their life calling. Yet if life were a single day this would equate to little more than putting on a single sock. You have not yet reached the door, and have the majority of the real work ahead.
With this perspective we can accept our calling as a critical step for putting on our shoes before we head out the front door to impact the world. As long as we remember that the world has not yet changed, and our love not yet felt.
What we must care about is faithfulness.
