my colleague JR & i regularly discuss current affairs over coffee or lunch, usually focussing on politics & finance. yesterday, we were again lamenting at the credit crunch/recession/bankruptcies that's gripping the world, when we realised that there's limited sound investment opportunities now.

that's when he asked : what we need now is wisdom.

but before i could reply, he continued : and wisdom is fear of the Lord.

i was down for the count, because JR is not exactly the God-fearing type although he has attended a few CG events i've invited his family to, & has a personal copy of the bible in his office.

good for you, JR, & while we're at it, can i also add this:

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well
matt 6:33

thanks, that's why i was totally taken aback that JR could quote from psalms.
