Spilled Ink

Pastor Todd Wilken, discussing Christian vocation on the July 14th, 2008 Issues, Etc. program:

How much ink is spilled, how much time is spent, frustrated Christians looking for God’s will for their life? They’re worried that they’re out of God’s will, that they’ve lost God’s will, that they need to somehow find that bulls-eye that God draws on the floor, and stand back in the center of it. It is much simpler than you’re given to believe by all of the, I should call it “modern monasticism,” that we find in pop American Christianity today. It really is as simple as “where has God put you, and who has God put in front of you, and what are their needs?” And guess what? That’s what God has given you to do. And you can worry about things one thing at a time.
