The Perils of Uncertainty

Many business leaders believe a primary reason we have yet to see the economy rebound is due to uncertainty. When taxes, the economy, and the political landscape are filled with unknowns, business leaders hesitate in moving forward with new projects, hiring, or significant activity.
Sometimes the best time to launch something new, however, is when everyone is gripped with fear. So how do you tell the difference?
Romans 8:5 teaches, "Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires."
Prudent planning and being aware of danger is imperative in business, yet when the Spirit of God is prodding you to move forward, listen to God's Spirit.
