Here’s the link: computers are a core business resource. What was a comparably important resource to business in the Biblical era? The various animals that farmed, carried burdens, and were harvested for food and fiber.
What does the Bible tell us should be done when this core business resource goes missing?
“If you come across your enemy’s ox or donkey wandering off, be sure to take it back to him” (Exodus 23:4). “If you see your brother’s ox or sheep straying … be sure to take it back to him” (Deuteronomy 22:1)
What about when the system crashes because it’s overloaded?
“If you see the donkey of one who hates you lying helpless under its load, you shall refrain from leaving it to him, you shall surely release it with him.” (Exodus 23:5) “If you see your brother’s donkey or his ox fallen on the road,do not ignore it. Help him get it to its feet.” (Deuteronomy 22:4)
By analogy: it doesn’t matter whether the system belongs to another member of the tribe or someone outside the tribe: you fix it.
God needs data geeks. Even if you’re not working for a “Christian organization,” you’re doing God’s work.
