Forum 4.2 (outcomes 2,3,4,5,6)
There are several examples of projects found in the Bible. There is the building of the temple (twice), building the tabernacle and the institution of the priesthood, the conquest and division of Canaan, Noah’s ark and the failure of the building of tower of Babel. In these examples there is a common thread that involves the attitude of the heart.
After reflecting on these examples, describe what common threads you see. Then, apply this common thread to your own experiences and professional setting. What is truly important for you when it comes to being successful? Share some valuable insights you have learned or were reminded of during this course.
In your response to others, ask questions that draw out the details behind others’ perspectives in this area. What perspectives are similar to yours? Different? Compare and contrast perspectives, sharing additional faith insights you feel are relevant to the conversation.
