Occupation

Occupation
Marcus Lacewell
Genesis 46:32-34
King James Version (KJV)
32 And the men are shepherds, for their trade hath been to feed cattle; and they have brought their flocks, and their herds, and all that they have.
33 And it shall come to pass, when Pharaoh shall call you, and shall say, What is your occupation?
34 That ye shall say, Thy servants' trade hath been about cattle from our youth even until now, both we, and also our fathers: that ye may dwell in the land of Goshen; for every shepherd is an abomination unto the Egyptians.
Many of us have developed, since birth,  the characteristics of our 'father figure's' occupation.   As time goes by, we, normally, take these developed characteristics to 'another destination.'  Only to realize that those developing characteristics were not leading us to our 'father figure's' occupation.  Instead, they were preparing us for our Father's intended occupation.  
Your 'father figure' may have been a fisherman.  You may have developed the characteristics to become a master fisherman.  You know most, not all, baits, to catch different types of fish.  You know where to find each type of fish.  You know the different methods to catch each fish. You gain all types of knowledge that helps develope your characteristics.
But, as time changes, methods of every occupation changes.  You begin to see that the methods of your 'father figure' no longer work.  So, you update them.   Then, you begin to step into your Father's intended occupation.  You begin to see how your development was not leading you toward your 'father figure's' occupation, but the occupation designed by your Father.  What is your occupation?  Unlearn.
