Why Is Wisdom More Precious Than Gold?

Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain 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. – Proverbs 3: 13-15

WISDOM is given more value than silver or gold in the Bible. God wants His children to ‘seek’ understanding, discretion and sound judgment. And, here are the benefits of living a life of Godly wisdom –

– Long life is in her right hand.

– In her left hand are riches and honor.

– Her ways are pleasant ways.

– And all her paths are peace.

– She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her.

– Those who hold her fast will be blessed.

My son, do not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight, preserve sound judgment and discretion; they will be life for you, an ornament to grace your neck. Then you will go on your way in safety, and your foot will not stumble. – Proverbs 3: 21-23
