01 Dec The Value of Wisdom – 12/1/20
Proverbs 16:16 – “How much better to get wisdom than gold, to get insight rather than silver!”
We probably all know a ‘Jones’ family in our lives that we naturally attempt to ‘keep up with’; perhaps benchmark our money, status and possessions against. What if we spent our time and energy with God, gaining wisdom and understanding? Proverbs 3:13 states: “Blessed is the one who finds wisdom, and the one who gets understanding.” Scripture has many truths about the wisdom He offers in all facets of our lives. Jesus, as he grew up, in Luke 2:52: “…increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man.” How much different would our lives be if we valued wisdom over money?
Lord help us to value wisdom and understanding more than gold and silver. Remind us of the many truths in Scripture that we can apply in our everyday lives. Give us a heart like Jesus.
