Over 1000 LinkedIn members have “asked me” to be their LinkedIn Contact. My policy is not to ask… but to be asked. Uppity? Maybe to some… Not so to me…or the 1000 people who asked me. I decided not to solicit anyone to my own account… rather… my purpose is to help others reach their own goals, by offering advice, direction, and support…sprinkled with a spiritual flavor.
I’m not a part of LinkedIn to build numbers, to build my own business, or paint pretty pictures….but rather….to promote quality skill-sets, and to Honor God…for all those Acts of LOVE He has bestowed on ‘all of man-kind.’ These 1000 LinkedIn associates are actually asking God to be part of their Life, Career, and Salvation…by the mere fact they solicit my association.
Through this process… we promote God; and seek others, through LinkedIn, who are like-minded to assist in this endeavor. I give free counsel to some 100+ people, in the form of career & personal advice… either indirectly through LinkedIn; my own website (www.charlesbrooks.com); or more directly through personal contact. With the far-reaching effect of LinkedIn; I believe we are reaching thousands more.
We are told in Matthew 28:19-20, which is my personal favorite…. “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
We find in these verses of Matthew, whereby Jesus is instructing His disciples to carry on the work His Ministry started in Israel. He instructs us to go throughout the world, sharing the word of God to “all nations” …spreading the truth of His good works… so that everyone will know the truth found in His word. When Jesus says… “I am with you always, to the end of the age,” he is extending comfort to God’s people. Regardless of where this journey might take us… we will KNOW His presence is with us for all of time.
