Which would you rather do? Help Dan fund his Yale stay or help me achieve financial independence so that I can retire right away? Which is it? Choose one. And base your choice completely on the fact that if I don’t retire soon, I will be forced to become blunt and direct instead of being my presently sweet and endearing self. Which will it be?
As the Deuteronomist has it- choose you this day life or death, blessing or curse. Do you want this?
Or to help out this shady looking teenager?
