What does it mean to be “called” to do something? Does it mean we feel we are going to be a success? Does it mean we are going to become famous or well-liked?
What if being called simply means acting in ways we know we already should act?
Today, Donald Miller wrote a blog post that made me think about what TWCD is called to do, and how we help people do what they are called to do. Being called means loving people, and TWCD wants to be an organization recognized as loving people and helping others love people. We exist to take people on trips because they want to help others.
Being called means doing small things in order to help other people. At TWCD, we know our impact may not be huge in the big picture. We may not be able to help everybody who is impacted by a disaster, and we definitely won’t be on CNN, but for the people we do help we are an answer to prayer and have a huge impact. There is nothing like the feeling of helping someone who is in need. Nothing beats it. That’s because it is what we are all called to do.
