This morning I read an article discussing organisational risk management. It queried whether the focus is on maintaining security and safety for the organisation (or oneself) or responsibly providing channels by which its service might maximise the spirit of risk and adventure for human life to flourish.
The Apostle Paul wants life in the Corinthian church to flourish and he has risked all, even his reputation, to ensure that it happens. He points to awareness of the gift of the fullness of humanity seen in Christ as the “day of salvation” through which all else is filtered. In this way “having nothing, he possesses everything.” Now there’s a risk management policy!
