Two men sat in one end of a lifeboat, Sat quietly while others worked To bail out the water with buckets. And this was the reason they shirked: The hole where the lifeboat was leaking Was away at the opposite end. So bailing should be others' burden. At least, that's what they would contend.

Are you paying attention? Or are you paying attention to the wrong stuff? A voice that sounds a lot like Wisdom as we met her in Proverbs begs us to learn from past experience, so as not to spend money when we can get free stuff.
