2017 Day 153 – Gold and Silver

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
