Diligence & Obedience

BYU's Devotional Speaker on Sept. 30th (Robert Steuer) mentioned a verse from the Doctrine and Covenants in his remarks (D&C 130:19) that got me thinking.  The verse implies that there is a connection between the "knowledge and intelligence" that we gain and our personal "diligence and obedience".  

That made me wonder if there are things that instructional designers can do to illicit "diligence and obedience" in learners and what that would look like.  Does this verse apply to all kinds of learning or just spiritual learning?  I'm still trying to figure this all out.l
