2 In today's fast-paced technological age, planning, and assessment are essential for successful decision-making and implementation of new technologies in a business setting. As a Christian, my worldview is guided by biblical teachings, and they serve as a source of strength and encouragement for me in all aspects of my life, including planning for my activities. In particular, Proverbs 16:3 states, "Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed" (New Living Translation, 1996/2015) (Greenhalgh et al., 2021). This verse reminds us to trust God's wisdom and leadership in all we do, including implementing new technologies in a business environment. As a Christian, committing to the Lord involves having faith and relying on God's guidance in all aspects of my life. This includes acknowledging that God is in control and submitting to his will in all my endeavors. This mindset helps me approach planning and decision-making with humility and a willingness to seek guidance from God (Allioui & Mourdi, 2023). It also reminds me that success depends not solely on my abilities but on God's provision and guidance. In terms of implementing new technologies in a business setting, committing to the Lord can bring success in various ways. Firstly, it can help us approach the decision with purpose and responsibility, knowing that we are accountable to God for our actions (Greenhalgh et al., 2021). This mindset can lead to more careful consideration and diligence in the planning and implementation, ultimately resulting in a more successful outcome. Furthermore, committing to the Lord also involves seeking wisdom and discernment from God. In the rapidly evolving world of technology, having a humble attitude and seeking God's guidance can help businesses decide which emerging technologies to invest in (Allioui &
3 Mourdi., 2023). This can prevent them from making hasty and potentially detrimental decisions, ultimately leading to success for the business. In addition, committing to the Lord also means aligning our actions with biblical values and ethical principles. This can help businesses avoid adopting technologies that may be unethical or harmful to society or the environment (Greenhalgh et al., 2021). By committing to ethical and moral standards, businesses can ensure the success of their operations and contribute to a more just and sustainable world. In conclusion, as a Christian, I believe committing to the Lord is crucial in all aspects of life, including planning and implementing new technologies in a business setting. By approaching decision-making with a sense of purpose and responsibility, seeking God's guidance, and aligning with biblical values, we can bring success to our endeavors (Allioui & Mourdi., 2023). Proverbs 16:3 reminds us that our plans will succeed when we commit our actions to the Lord.
