Our Vocation is Our Way to Love God

    Our vocation is unique to us.  While God calls may call us to the same vocation, we are all unique and live out our vocations in ways as unique as we have been created.  Our vocation comes from God and it is before God that we commit to them.  So, living out of vocation is our unique way to love God.
    Many time, we think of love as a commodity.  If you give some to your spouse, you have less to give to your children, or even God.  How very far from the truth this is?  Love is not a commodity.  The more that you give, the more you receive.  If God is Love [1 John 4:8] and God is infinite, than love must be infinite as well.  The only one putting confines around love are ourselves.
    God is in our vocation, since it is His calling and we commit to this calling before God.  So, by loving those within our vocation, we are bringing love to God.  If we detest our vocation or those within it, we are detesting God.  God is love and knows all, so how can we tell God that our vocation was wrong?  Doing so separates us from God.
    Most of us are married and during a Catholic wedding, the couple seals their bond in the name of the Trinity.  “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” – [Matthew 18:20]  So, we have Jesus in our midst when we are gathered with our spouse.  Amazing!
