For this course, the concept of stewardship is especially important. As Van Duzer (2010) posited, a steward is really a trustee of God’s creation. Duby (2009) adds the following:
Stevens (2006) observes that Adam and Eve were given the role of stewards who had “the wonderful role of representing the absent monarch’s interests” (p. 6). As stewards, followers of God act as trustees that are to develop and to serve the “unfolding kingdom” of creation (Roels, 1990, p. 27). Further, Roels contends that if one believes that his or her business plays an important role in God’s kingdom, then an important concern is to best determine how to be God’s steward in such business endeavors.
Understanding this important role is critical to understanding God’s intentions for business. Thus, in this assignment, the student will link the concept of biblical stewardship to quality management and process improvement, noting how such concepts are tangible manifestations of good stewardship.
In Module 1, the presentation addresses the need for those in quality management to see the big picture: that we are called to be regents of our God in every human activity.
In Module 4, the presentation builds on this foundation, noting that as regents we are stewards of all that God gives us, and as stewards, we seek the best uses for the resources entrusted to us—including our desire to be productive and to produce quality. Consider these ideas as you develop your paper.
Submit your Thematic Integration of Faith and Learning Paper through the provided SafeAssign link by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Friday of Module 4/Week 8.
