The richest man in Singapore, Philip Ng Chee Tat, has said living without Jesus and focusing on material things is a sad way to live. The tycoon said he is an ardent Christian and prides himself in giving his life to Jesus Christ.
During an interview with Belivers Portal, Philip also said all humans are broken and the piece that makes them whole is none other than Jesus. To him, everyone has a missing piece that once found, will make them whole.
“I have discovered all of us are broken, we all have a missing piece. For me, I discovered the missing piece was God in Jesus Christ,” the tycoon said. To Philip, the only way to achieve happiness and live a fulfilling life is through recognising humans search for the wrong things.
“A better life, a better purpose, better me and a better everything. I was looking at all the wrong things,” he added. The wealthy developer said all his life, things did not make sense but his life took a turn when he discovered the love of God.
“It sure beats a lot of money and material things that you may have. It starts with accepting you are broken and there is a missing piece. For me, personally, that missing piece is our Lord Jesus Christ,” he remarked. Philip is the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Far East Organization Centre Pte. Ltd, Singapore’s largest closely held developer.
Since 1986, the billionaire has been a consultant for Hong Kong and China projects of the Sino Group, with duties of planning and guiding development activities. He has also been Strategic Advisor of Far East Orchard Limited since January 1, 2013.
