In this passage from Ecclesiastes, we learn one very important lesson in both management and our everyday walk of life. Only one thing in life is certain, and that is uncertainty. The reading from the Old Testament ties in nicely to our discussion of risk and the role of risk in real-world business cases.
Read the passage a few times and think about what the author is saying and how it applies to risk. What would life be like without risk? Is risk necessary in management and should risk always be considered a bad thing? How does risk play a role in your relationship with Christ and helping others receive his message?
Explain how important risk is in your spiritual, personal, and professional life.
