Risk management is a strategic process that involves identifying, evaluating and controlling threats to an organization’s capital and earnings. In light of this rather weighty definition, one would reasonably assume that the sources of insight and instruction about risk management include business courses, business books, professional consultants, and so on. Granted, these can all provide valuable information. But there is another — and for many people, a quite surprising and unexpected — source that offers an abundance of powerful, yet practical risk management advice: the Bible.

According to Akintayo Emmanuel, the Overseer of God’s Remnant Assembly, three Bible passages in…


These days, the impact and reach of social media — led by platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Google (YouTube), Instagram, TikTok, Pinterest, and several others — is colossal and rapidly growing. According to Statista.com, Facebook now has 2.7 billion active users around the world. To put this number in perspective, consider that the population of the planet is around 7.8 billion people.

However, many businesses are finding that instead of managing social media, they are being managed by social media. And it’s certainly not a positive or healthy relationship. On the contrary, it’s stressful, dangerous, and risky.

Still, there is…


If 2020 has taught us anything, it is to expect the unexpected. For example, in February the U.S. unemployment rate plunged to 3.5%, which was the lowest level since end the of World War Two. Then just two months later in May, the unemployment rate skyrocketed to 14.7%. Not only was this the highest rate ever recorded, but it also represented the largest month-over-month increase in history.

And even those who were fortunate enough not to find themselves unemployed and struggling to make financial ends meet, there are many other scenarios that demonstrate the critical importance of crisis management skills…


It has been said that “the only constant in life is change.” However, what billions of people around the world have experienced over the past several months due to the COVID-19 pandemic is not mere change: it is dramatic and rapid upheaval that has forced them to make major shifts to multiple aspects of their life: from how they earn their living, to how they connect with family members, friends, caregivers, and members of their community.

In light of this enormous change, many people are searching for ways and wisdom to achieve stability and remain focused on what truly matters…


We all know that on occasion life can be full of challenges. Sometimes we see these events unfolding towards us from a distance, and other times they erupt in our lives without notice. Yet despite their different dynamics and details, what binds these challenging times is that they are all tests from God that we can either pass with distinction and triumph, or struggle and fail — and invariably find ourselves forced to face the same or a similar test down the road.

“In school we accept and even embrace tests that evaluate our level of understanding and help us…


The word “wise” is used loosely these days to describe everything from celebrities on YouTube to futuristic TVs that know what you want to watch before you do. However, what does it truly mean to be wise? What are the tell-tale characteristics of an individual whose knowledge and abilities surpass the ordinary, such that he or she becomes a beacon to others searching and stumbling in the dark?

According to the Overseer of God’s Remnant Assembly Akintayo Emmanuel, we can spot, celebrate and cherish the truly wise among us by relying on the clear instructions and insights conveyed by four…


About half of all marriages in the U.S. and many other countries around the world end in divorce. And even in some marriages that seemingly withstand the test of time are fraught with conflict, strife, suffering — and in some cases violence and abuse.

The bad news is that there is no secret formula, positive affirmation, or handy mobile app that guarantees wedded bliss for decades tying the knot. Yet the good news is that the word of God offers an abundance of inspiring and practical advice on how to experience a blessed and harmonious marriage.

According to the Overseer…


Despite a seemingly endless list of motivations and incentives, the fundamental desire of all people regardless of where they have been or where they are headed is to be joyful. And yet despite this lifelong mission, the fact remains that for many folk’s, joyfulness is the exception rather than the norm. In fact, when we come across someone who seems truly joyful, instead of yearning to follow their lead, we tend to become suspicious, skeptical, cynical, dismissive, and envious (e.g. …


Gossip can seem like nothing more than a casual remark or an off-handed observation. However, gossip in all of its forms can be more damaging and insidious than a blatant allegation or accusation. In severe cases it can ruin lives, and in extreme cases it can end them.

Steering clear of gossip — both on the giving and receiving end — is a lifelong challenge and commitment. While the Bible offers an abundance of invaluable guidance on this critical issue, according to Dr. …
