SERVICE: Recently, I read, where someone pointed out that ‘Religion and Business don’t mix.’ I think… it was meant to say that ‘God does not belong in the workplace.’ All Religions don’t include God, nor do all businesses. For me… I cannot relate to the exclusion.
To me, they’re one and the same… they go ‘hand-in-hand.’ I don’t do business without God. Admittedly…I espouse God on LinkedIn, and certainly my own website…www.charlesbrooks.com. I don’t make it my business to defend God; rather, I merely intend to offer guidance in such a way that God is clearly evident …in the process…as the Great Leader, Teacher, and Motivator.
I do this by trying very hard to set an example…whereby God is clearly evident. I offer advice if someone were to seek it… and give this advice (*) from a ‘God perspective.” I do this…just as I think God would expect of me… giving Him the honor and glory for any success; both business and personal. I’m His servant, and yours… if you want.
We are guided by Galatians 5:13 – “For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.”
There are those who attend church only to be served, instead of ‘seeking to serve’ …others. We are directed by Jesus to love one another… to serve one another, and to… expect nothing in return.
