I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, Eph 4:1
God has called you and I as Christ followers into something...
Here is the thing...each of us are different. I have passions that you don't have, and you have stuff I don't have, but do you know what we both have that should be a common denominator? JESUS!
I have a heart to see men come alive in Jesus, I love seeing men love their families well. I want to be a guy that leads this out in his family (even though I know I fail sometimes). I want to walk in such a way that people would look at me and say, 'you know Caleb...he's just is crazy about his wife and children, and he LOVES to lead them to the feet of Jesus!' That is success!
Find ways to do the things that God has called you to do, and bring your family along with you. I travel a lot and speak, and I love bringing my family with me. Why? Because they get to see God at work in the places we go, and the conversations we have in the car sometimes are a total blast!
We as Christ followers need to be on mission and our families need to be somehow involved in what we are doing as well. Even if it's just sitting and watching, but at some point they need to get their hands dirty in the work of the Gospel.
You may be sitting there and saying to yourself...well, Caleb I don't speak....that's OK. You might like to put cabinets together...figure out how to walk worthy in the calling of putting cabinets together for the glory of God, and involve your family somehow.
Ask yourself the question...what do you love to do? What makes you come alive? Figure that out, and put Jesus at the center of what you love to do, and make that your mission.
