God’s call is primarily soteriological rather than occupational—we are called more to someone (God) than to do something. … vocational guidance is not discerning our call but in the context of our call to discipleship discerning the guidance of God in our lives and learning how to live in every dimension in response to God’s call. (R. Paul Stevens, “Calling/vocation” in The Complete Book of Everyday Christianity)
