“The various relational roles you are in are not what defines you and they’re not what gets in the way of you…they are your callings.”

June 3, 2018

As we close up this final section of calling, there is one last piece of the puzzle that we must address, and that is our various relational roles. All of us have various roles as parents, children, spouses, siblings, grandparents, etc. And each of these different roles comes with its own unique set of responsibilities. Because of the nature of these roles we can all be tempted to view them as idols and inconveniences. But God imbues these relationships with a a much deeper sense of meaning as he helps us understand that each relational role we’re in is a calling made by a wise, sovereign, and loving God.
