What the Bible Teaches About Digital Transformation

WORDS ARE THE GENESIS OF CREATION

MAKE IT EMOTIONALLY DESIRABLE (LIKE THE FRUIT)

When God created Adam and Eve, He told them that they could eat from any tree in the garden except one on penalty of death,, so naturally they feared it. Despite those deep fears, however, the serpent was able to tempt Eve into eating the fruit of that tree by telling her, “You will not surely die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil” (Gen. 3:4–5 ESV).

BE PERSISTENT LIKE NOAH

God gave Noah a vision of a flood and inspired him to construct the ark. But during the decades it took to build the ark on dry land, many people made fun of him. After all, it seemed crazy, building a giant boat in the middle of nowhere and filling it up with animals. But Noah worked on it with the persistent faith that it was the right thing to do. Sure enough, the flood came and only Noah, his family, and the animals he kept survived.

SEE DISASTERS AS HIDDEN OPPORTUNITIES LIKE JOSEPH

Joseph had the ability to see and interpret dreams. His ability initially sparked jealousy in his brothers and led to him being sold into slavery and subseqently being imprisoned in Egypt. Despite this dark turn, he continued to use his gifts to interpret the dreams of prisoners and guards, which then led to him being called by the pharaoh to interpret his dream. Ultimately, he rose to power and became the second most powerful person in all of Egypt.

MOVE FORWARD LIKE MOSES PARTING THE RED SEA

After escaping from Egypt with the Egyptian Army chasing him and his people, Moses found himself in a predicament. He had reached the edge of the Red sea. There were mountains on both sides, and the army of Egypt was right behind them. He seemed trapped, but what did Moses do? He moved forward, and as he did, the waters of the sea parted.

YOU WILL LOSE CONTROL OVER YOUR PEOPLE

After God parted the Red Sea and led the people of Israel in the wilderness, Moses went to get the ten commandments and the people of Israel decided to build and worship an image of a golden calf. We can see this theme of idolatry throughout the iblical narrative; God’s people continued to engage in forbidden activities despite being told not to and despite all the things that God had done for them.

IT’S NEVER OVER
