We can learn from history. 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.
