“Wisdom”

Posted on: February 15th, 2016 by Chuck Ball No Comments

“Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold. She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her.”(Prov.3:13-15) These few verses from Proverbs describe the benefits of wisdom and completely contradict the popular belief of our modern culture. This day and time the emphasis is clearly placed on monetary wealth without much regard for wisdom. According to the above text, wisdom is far more important than worldly wealth. In fact, one who has wisdom has true wealth. Wisdom is very interesting as it can come as a result of education and experience but it also comes from God. Very early in Solomon’s reign as the king of Israel he realized the importance of wisdom and his need for it and he prayed to God for wisdom. (I Kings 3:9) Solomon needed wisdom to lead God’s people. In the same way, you and I need wisdom as we go about our daily activities. Wisdom is supreme to worldly wealth because wisdom is having the discernment to make right life decisions. “Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.”(Prov.4:6-7) “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.”(Jas.1:5)
