Day 20: Ask your friends

Normally I teach this material on calling in a class or small discipleship group setting. Over the years, the benefit to a group setting has become very clear to me. I have learned an important truth:

Your calling is best discovered in community.

Often the people close to us know us better than we know ourselves. They can see what we’re good at, where
we shine. If they’re close enough, they can also see our flaws, where we’re not so shiny.

Your community plays a key role in helping you discover your calling. The people around you can help you see where and how God can best use you in your shared community. So, your job today is to ask your friends.

Choose someone close to you and ask him or her the following questions:

  • How would you describe me in a few words?
  • What am I doing when I’m at my best?
  • Have you ever sensed God working through me? What were the circumstances?

Daily Journal Question: How would your friends describe you? Ask them the questions above and write or type their answers in your journal.
