Wisdom Is The Principal Thing
Proverbs 3:13-16 (NLT) — Joyful is the person who finds wisdom, the one who gains understanding. For wisdom is more profitable than silver, and her wages are better than gold. Wisdom is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. She offers you long life in her right hand, and riches and honor in her left.
Solomon describes the value of wisdom. Proverbs uses the term wisdom in reference to something more than mere intelligence or knowledge. Biblical wisdom is the ability to apply knowledge in a godly way. The capacity to follow God’s will is incredibly valuable, more so than any material possession ever would be. Nothing a person can desire can compare with wisdom. This includes all possessions, accolades, and luxuries.
A person may desire fame or fortune, but wisdom is far better. Instead of believing God for things all the time, maybe we should seek wisdom above all else. It’s wisdom that will cause us to be successful in life. Let’s seek wisdom and watch what God does in our lives.
