A Higher Calling

What would you say is your highest calling in life? Some would say family, others would say major achievements such as ministry or business success. Others would go the other extreme and say that living a life of faithfulness in secret is the manifestation of the highest calling.

John Silkauskas brings up an interesting point in a recent blog post in which he subtly challenges these notions and suggests that our highest calling is actually not in the pursuit of goals, but in the pursuit of relationship with Jesus. As said another way, our highest calling is knowing Jesus, not accomplishing things.
