In Deuteronomy 32, God complained about the Israelites, “For they are a nation lacking in counsel, and there is no understanding in them. “Would that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would discern their future!”

In our rapidly changing business world, wisdom demands us to seek counsel, discern the future and act accordingly.
