Both conferences and college are definite ways to get to where you want to go, right? I’ve been to each and actually have to disagree with them being the entire solution. I know there are people who have their eyes set on what they wish they could be doing, but while they’re driving down through life God throws a ROAD CLOSED sign in their path. I know I often believe that money is the answer to many problems, but look at how it also creates most of them! I would have thought by now that someone would come up with an answer for this, or at least see if God wants them to fix it. I know our government isn’t at all interested, so it’s up to us.
Obviously people prefer to learn from those that have serious experience. That’s a given. But why can’t those with experience share without getting so much out of it themselves. That’s usually where the money from the students pocket goes. This is one of my biggest passions in life, and I think it’s a way for many of us to be Christ to others. We all are gifted at something. So why not find a way to give that gift to someone else, for free. I’m so thrilled to host the Digital Disciples gathering each month, and let individuals and myself share all of the technology knowledge we have gathered. Actually following through with this has allowed me to realize that it’s not about the money. It’s also shown me that conferences sure can be fun, but that people don’t learn unless there’s a continual connection or dependable source to go to. Are some of you discontent with colleges and conferences being road blocks in your life? Could some of you step up and provide an alternative?
PRAYING that I can be a blessing to a family I am connecting with today. PRAISING God for providing the ultimate example of service and humility in His Son, Jesus Christ.
