Devotional Assignments

Assignment 1.1As professionals, implementing information technology best strategies in support of the goals of the organization should be based on a foundation of diligence and planning. Proverbs 21:5(new tab) says, “The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance, but everyone who is hasty comes to poverty” (English Standard Version, 2001/2016). This perspective is shared by God’s Word, emphasizing thorough and diligent planning. When we follow the wisdom of God, we are rewarded for our obedience.ReferenceEnglish Standard Version. (2016).

As you begin the development of your project, consider 1 Corinthians 10:11(new tab) that states, “Now these things happened to them as an example, and were written down for our instruction, upon whom the ends of the ages have come” (New American Standard Bible, 1960/2020). The early Christian church experienced events that were written down to provide future guidance moving forward. Ancient Israel received words of wisdom. Proverbs 1:5(new tab) says, “Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance” (English Standard Version, 2001/2016). Proverbs 9:9(new tab) restates the call to wisdom: “Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning” (English Standard Version, 2001/2016). The wise, the Bible says, learn from instruction. In our project, we are sharing wisdom from our program coursework. Wisdom has been accumulated from a better understanding of the field of technology and from the Christian worldview we have been learning about in each course.ReferencesEnglish Standard Version.

We are encouraged to move forward until the work is done, but how do we find the strength to carry on? Again, God’s Word provides an answer. The Apostle Paul said he found his strength in looking to God as his encouragement. “I can do all things through him who strengthens me” (English Standard Version, 2001/2016, Philippians 4:13(new tab)).ReferencesEnglish Standard Version.

Colossians 3:17(new tab) says, “And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him” (English Standard Version, 2001/2016). The Apostle Paul was encouraging the church at Colossae to put their whole being into the work they were doing and give thanks in all they do. We should be stimulated to do the same in this endeavor.ReferenceEnglish Standard Version. (2016).

Philippians 3:14(new tab) says, “I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus” (English Standard Version, 2001/2016).  We are to press forward, be diligent, and carry through to the end.

It also says something about completing any task or project, even life, that we take on with serious intent.ReferenceEnglish Standard Version. (2016).
