Blessed Is the One Who Finds Wisdom
13 Blessed is the one who finds wisdom,
and the one who gets understanding,
14 for the gain from her is better than gain from silver
and her profit better than gold.
15 She is more precious than jewels,
and nothing you desire can compare with her.
16 Long life is in her right hand;
in her left hand are riches and honor.
17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness,
and all her paths are peace.
18 She is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her;
those who hold her fast are called blessed.
Just last night I was whining or complaining in my subtle manipulating way that I wish we had more money. And yet I teach my children that wisdom from the Lord is far more valuable than any Wii or skateboard. I must practice what I preach. I have been blessed beyond measures with wisdom from God’s Word. Why is this so hard for us to acknowledge or believe? It’s so clear in His Word.
Dear Heavenly Father:
Please guide me today and every other day you grant me here on your Earth. Please allow me to be content with what you bless me with. Your Word is a gift to me. May I continue to grow in wisdom and understanding. Please give me true faith and peace in believing that knowledge from you is far more greater than any silver or gold measured in this secular world. Thank you for always, always providing for me and my family.
