Wisdom. What are the benefits of wisdom? Proverbs 3:13-18 tell us.
“ Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.14 For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.15 She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.16 Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honor.17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.18 She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.”
People today are seeking happiness, understanding, wealth, longevity, and peace. Unfortunately, most people are not seeking God’s wisdom. They seek the wisdom of the world.
The world’s wisdom causes wars, strife, death, and alienation from God. It is useless and a bad choice.
Contrast that with the results of God’s wisdom and God’s wisdom wins every time.
Choose God’s wisdom!
