VERSES

WEEK 4 - Planning & Strategies
Genesis 6:13-21

13 "So God said to Noah, "I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth. 14 So make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out. 15 This is how you are to build it: The ark is to be 450 feet long, 75 feet wide and 45 feet high. 16 Make a roof for it and finish the ark to within 18 inches of the top. Put a door in the side of the ark and make lower, middle and upper decks. 17 I am going to bring floodwaters on the earth to destroy all life under the heavens, every creature that has the breath of life in it. Everything on earth will perish. 18 But I will establish my covenant with you, and you will enter the ark—you and your sons and your wife and your sons' wives with you. 19 You are to bring into the ark two of all living creatures, male and female, to keep them alive with you. 20 Two of every kind of bird, of every kind of animal and of every kind of creature that moves along the ground will come to you to be kept alive. 21 You are to take every kind of food that is to be eaten and store it away as food for you and for them."

The great flood is one of the greatest examples of planning and strategy found in the Bible. God had a perfect plan for the way Noah was to build the ark so that it would not sink. God also told Noah the exact number of animals to bring and everything was planned out in great detail so there was no way anything could go wrong.

WEEK 5 - Values & Ethics
“For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. It teaches us to say ‘No’ to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope—the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.” (Titus 2:11-14)

Christians have to set an example for the unsaved world when it comes to values and ethics, especially in the area of management. A managerial position needs to be seen as the prime example for all the employees. This position should be held by someone who is willing to say “No” when the time and situation are right and not waiver from the truths of what will make or break the organization. Cheating or short-cuts are not an option.

WEEK 12 - Organizing
1 Chronicles 23:1-6
1 When David was old and full of years, he made his son Solomon king over Israel.

2 He also gathered together all the leaders of Israel, as well as the priests and Levites. 3 The Levites thirty years old or more were counted, and the total number of men was thirty-eight thousand. 4 David said, "Of these, twenty-four thousand are to supervise the work of the temple of the LORD and six thousand are to be officials and judges.5 Four thousand are to be gatekeepers and four thousand are to praise the LORD with the musical instruments I have provided for that purpose."

6 David divided the Levites into groups corresponding to the sons of Levi: Gershon, Kohath and Merari.
