“…By nature, I am a loner, and after almost 75 years…you could say it is also by choice….”

What do you SHARE about yourself, about your career, your company or employer, your friends, and things about your family?   Do you tell half-truths; no truth; or the whole truth?  You and I are “ordained” to tell the truth about what we do, what we say, what we hear, about our company, about our family, and about Our God.  When we are hired into a job… it is expected that we speak well of our employer.  It is expected that we spread the word about our products, our co-workers, our friends, and our family.  If we cannot speak well of these elements, then we are working for the wrong people, representing the wrong product, and hanging around with the wrong people; and maybe, we idolize the wrong God.  It is, primarily, because of this belief…. That I write these very words.  By nature, I am a loner, and after almost 75 years…you could say it is also by choice.  But about two years ago, I started on a different course in life.  I discovered, through Adrian Despray, who is my friend, my Bible study teacher, and renowned world-wide Evangelist.  He challenged me, and others, one Thursday morning to…Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.  – Matthew 28:19.  Admittedly, it took about six months to realize that he was talking about what God expected of me….and until then; I was not willing to do.  In fact, I never make the connection that I had a role to play in God’s plan.  Now, and two years later… I’ve not let up in my quest to “spread and SHARE the word.”  I was only interested in saving my own soul, and NEVER considered that others may need help.  BrOOKS-of-WISDOM, and the role I play on LinkedIn, are the visible results of this new commitment.  God is NOT just talking to me…He’s talking to all of us.  We ALL have a responsibility to SHARE the Gospel.  The Lord expects this of us. The Apostle Paul commanded, “Be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.” (1 Tim. 4:12.) …Blessings… cjlb…6/14/14
