“Take my instruction and not silver,
And knowledge rather than choicest gold.
11 “For wisdom is better than jewels;
And all desirable things cannot compare with her.
How many of us if we had the choice of gold or instruction, would choose instruction?
Come on, be honest! It’s hard to make the argument for instruction, isn’t it?
Yet, the Word of God is quite clear wisdom is more precious than Gold, silver or rubies. Why is this?
It has to do with what we value. Most people just value cash. And they are on a chase to get more of it, more quickly.
Yet cash is not the solely the answer to anything on it’s own. Dollars in your bank account won’t make you feel loved, it won’t provide a reason for getting up in the morning, and it certainly can’t go with you into eternity.
To use wealth effectively – to solve problems, to empower others, to achieve things of value, to maximise it’s value – you need wisdom. Wealth by itself is not complete. It needs something to go with it for it be useful; wisdom.
Wisdom can maximise the best of any situation. Whereas dollars by themselves need to be stewarded and directed.
Wisdom can solve problems. Wealth only has the potential to solve problems. Wisdom is what is missing, not just wealth. Therefore, choose wisdom.
PRAYER: Father, let me not be blinded by wealth. I choose wisdom today. I ask for a spirit of wisdom and revelation from you Lord. In Jesus name, Amen.
