The disciples were chosen and called personally by Jesus. But God also calls each one of us. God not only calls us to follow Jesus, but also calls us into the fields and careers of our lives. Everyone is called to a vocation, a station in life, teacher, insurance salesman, car mechanic, politician, etc. We also have callings within family structures -- mother, father, aunt, uncle, child, etc. We serve God in these family callings as well. God’s call is always into an uncertain future. When we enter into our callings we have no idea how it will all end up. We choose our careers and jobs hoping that we can use the gifts and talents God has given us, but there are no guarantees.
