I’d like to say first that I believe we’re all called to do good deeds, regardless of whether the deed falls in line with our gifting. Additionally, I know works don’t save us, they are an overflow of the change God has done in us.
All that said, is it right to feel called to do certain types of good deeds but not others? For example, I’ll be honest in saying that volunteering my time is something that I selfishly struggle with, and I don’t usually feel compelled to do. On the flip side, giving is something that comes much easier to me. Not to say I always give in every situation, but it’s easier for me to do than volunteer at a homeless shelter, give blood, etc. Another example is that I don’t feel a specific call to go on missions abroad, but I do feel called to serve in a college ministry and help college students navigate the difficult questions of faith and help them navigate the temptations of college in general.
I guess what is concerning to me is that I don’t want to use the excuse of “not feeling called” to do a certain good deed, if it’s really just me not wanting to do something. I apologize if this was a confusing post, but I would appreciate any insight!
