Without commenting on DIANOIAS itself, I also note that Jesus
has much praise for those who are FRONIMOS -- shrewd or prudent
-- including five maids with lamps and a house manager. He
even gently chides his followers-to-be because the children
of this age are more FRONIMOS than they are (although I don't
have the references handy).
Thanks for making us think about the quote.
I suspect that fuller feedback will have to wait till this
week-end. Is this the week that many of our luminaries are
off in San Francisco?
