Daylight Savings Time starts today in most of the US (the non-NW part of Indiana and Arizona are exceptions)-If you haven't done so, set your clocks ahead a hour-"spring forward and fall back." Edifier du Jour-Psalm 13(NASB)
1 O LORD, who may abide in Your tent? Who may dwell on Your holy hill? 2 He who walks with integrity, and works righteousness, And speaks truth in his heart. 3 He does not slander with his tongue, Nor does evil to his neighbor, Nor takes up a reproach against his friend; 4 In whose eyes a reprobate is despised, But who honors those who fear the LORD; He swears to his own hurt and does not change; 5 He does not put out his money at interest, Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things will never be shaken.
The biblical finance course we're going through on Sunday mornings is on honesty week and offered up this passage among others. A couple non-boilerplate things come up. We're promice that the honest God-fearing man won't be shaken. Also, the person "swears to his own hurt" ; that will me that the stoic approach isn't a godly one. I'm still wondering how to apply "put out his money at interest" for it would transform how you would advise about investment strategy; taken at face value, that would mean no bonds, money-market funds or any debt in one's investment portfolio.
