Singapore’s Richest Man Advises: The ‘Peace and Joy’ of ‘Jesus Christ,’ It ‘Sure Beats a Lot of Money’ By Michael W. Chapman for CNS News
Singapore’s richest man, Philip Ng, who with his brother Robert is worth $12.1 billion, said that his greatest treasure is the “peace and joy” of his faith in Jesus Christ, which he wishes “for everyone to have,” and especially young people, reported Foxnews.com.
“What I’ve discovered is that all of us are broken,” Ng said in a video posted by one of his proteges, Matthew Yao, on Instagram. “We all have a missing piece, and for me, I discovered that the missing piece was God through Jesus Christ.”
Philip Ng and his brother run the Far East Organization, one of Asia’s largest real estate groups. On its website, the company states, “Far East Organization is a Christian enterprise. We seek to be a community of love and a workplace of grace that welcomes Christians and non-Christians alike to work joyfully together.”
In the video, Yao asks Ng, “To all the young people watching this, what do you think is the one piece of advice you’d give them?”
Ng responds by talking about “all of us being broken” and that the missing piece for him was Jesus Christ. He then says, “I was always in search for a better life, a better purpose, a better me, a better everything. I was just looking at all the wrong things, but when I realized there is no better me or better things without Jesus, then it all snapped into place.”
