Some of us may try to satisfy our discontentment by shifting around our circumstances (like me). Some of us may try to numb it by turning to food or alcohol or sex (I do that, too). Some of us may do all of the above (guilty)! We all experience this inner-thirst of discontentment and try to satisfy it with all the wrong things. We sip from the many cups this world offers, only to be repeatedly reminded that they don’t contain the satisfying substance we really desire. We indulge, manipulate our circumstances, and buy new things, yet we continue to find ourselves dissatisfied, fidgety, and bored. So what are we to do? I think most Christians understand that discontentment is birthed and nurtured in a heart that isn’t satisfied in God. So, obviously, the best way to go about fighting it is to seek to be satisfied in God, right?http://rileycampbellpost.universitypunjabi.org/2016/08/30/an-insightful-examination-of-fast-systems-for-vocation/

Each of us is called to be someone and to do things it is part of human existence and discovering these things is a lifelong process of growth and change. In the general law of doing good, and in the facilities given us to do it, we read a general, or it may be even a special, invitation of God to do it, an invitation which is pressing in proportion to the excellence of the good, but which nevertheless we are not bound to accept unless we discover some duty of justice or charity. Religious communities often refer to themselves as “religious families”. “They have Moses and the prophets”, said Christ in the parable of the rich man and Lazarus Luke 16:29, and we have no need for anyone to rise from the dead to teach us our duty .
