What is Your Calling?

“For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” – Mark 10:45 Today I want to answer the question that so many people ask: What is my calling?

It’s a question you may continually ask, especially when you feel like you’re in a rut, in a middle or gray area, or maybe you just lost your job.
