TOPIC: Organization and Technology
"Where there are no oxen, the manger is empty,
but from the strength of an ox come abundant harvests" - Proverbs 14:4.
Your life may be simpler without technology, but it isn't easier to organize with out it. While technology brings its own set of problems, like a messy ox, it also enables you to do so much more and organize all that you do. Plus technology can do some of the organizing for you, just like an ox does thing for the plower that he cannot do for himself. Keep in mind: You don't have to understand how the technology works, you only have to understand how to use it. What is your level of skill where technology is concerned? Are you intimidated and fearful of it? If you are comfortable with it, are you learning new things on new hardware to better organize your day and work?
Lord, You created this technology. I admit that I am fearful of it, and have tried to keep a clean manger, so to speak, to avoid any mess. I am willing to learn and grow. First, help me find people who will help tutor me, then help me identify what I need for the work I am doing, and finally, help me to use it all effectively.
