day no. 13,016: wisdom > wealth

Proverbs 8:11

For wisdom is better than jewels,
and nothing desirable can compare with it.
Of all the things people find desirable: power, pennies, pleasure, peace, profligacy, prestige, etc… wisdom trumps them all.
Knowing the purpose of life, the Creator of life, the applied practices and principles of living this life and the promises of God in providing for us in our poverty is of more value than any other single thing.
Jewels are cool, but it is better to know how to appreciate jewels without orienting your life around acquiring them that is most profitable.
Orient your life around acquiring wisdom.
Nothing can compare to what you will find.
