What is the difference between purpose and calling?
We are products. God is our producer.
We were created for a purpose. To accomplish that purpose, God gives us a means. The purpose is to Glorify God and the means is our calling. Your purpose is more important than calling but you cannot achieve your purpose without your calling.
Calling is the road you take to get to purpose. Purpose is the destination. In Christ, we all have the same destination but we uniquely different roads to get to this destination.
We each have unique gifts, passions, talents and abilities, personalities, and experiences that shape us and make us uniquely suited for our calling in life.
