Proverbs 3: 13-14
“Blessed is the one who finds wisdom, and the one who gets understanding, for the gain from her is better than gain from silver
and her profit better than gold.”
We spend the majority of our lives working so we can gain wealth. Solomon says that those who gain wisdom (applied knowledge) and understanding, they are blessed far more than attaining wealth. Wisdom and understanding were extremely important to Solomon, the wisest man of his time, and the richest man of his time. As a matter of fact, when God asked Solomon to ask Him for whatever he wanted, Solomon ask for wisdom. I dare say most of us would ask for material things if God asked us that question, but wisdom and understanding will make us happier and wealthier in the grand scheme of life.
Working hard is honorable and necessary but ask God for wisdom and understanding, you will be amazed where it takes you.
