Passion is less about what feels good and more about what is right
Millennials have always been nudged to “follow our passion”. I don’t know if it is still the same for Gen Z.
But over the years, I’ve come to realize that blindly following one’s passion because it feels good can lead to burnout or serial quitting. Authentic passion is less about what feels good and more about finding out what is right for a person even if it demands certain sacrifices.
Passion should not be framed merely as an emotion because emotions are fickle. A more holistic view of passion should include choice and responsibility.
When we pray that we find our passion, in effect, we are praying that we find our space and purpose where we are willing to sacrifice for a greater good.
Matthew 26:14-27:66. The passion of Christ.
