How much better to get wisdom than gold!
To get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver. Proverbs 16:16
You can’t read Proverbs without the ongoing emphasis to gain wisdom versus being a fool. But I loved the reminder that wisdom and understanding are wealth to us.
Just a few days ago, I blogged about the value of Scripture and quoted Psalm 119:
Therefore I love your commandments
above gold, above fine gold. Psalm 119:127
Putting the Proverb and the Psalm together, I am reminded to ask God more often – daily – for wisdom and understanding, while also looking for it in His Scriptures.
Because it’s all worth more than gold and silver!
Dear Lord: Please remind me to pray for more wisdom and understanding – and reveal it to me in your Word. Amen
