MUST READ: 7 Common Mistakes in Discernment
July 13th, 2016 by Wayne

Two days ago, Mr. Tim Glemkowski wrote a fantastic article entitled “The 7 Most Common Mistakes You Can Make While Discerning Your Vocation.” It is full of great advice for all of us and I encourage you to take about 5 minutes and read the article. As an introduction though, here are the 7 mistakes upon which he expounds:

  1. Religious life is the only path to holiness and marriage is an easy way out
  2. Not having a spiritual director OR having too many
  3. Thinking about your discernment too much
  4. “If I don’t pick the right vocation, I’ll never be really happy.”
  5. Suffering is a sign that something is wrong
  6. Chasing your feelings around
  7. Being unwilling or afraid to commit

Again, these are all common mistakes in discernment and Mr. Glemkowski does a fantastic job of explaining how and why each of these is a mistake that can keep you stuck in your spiritual journey of discipleship. Read it and save the link. You’ll want to read it again.
