Proverbs 3:13-15

Happy is the man who finds wisdom,
And the man who gains understanding;
For her proceeds are better than the profits of silver,
And her gain than fine gold.
She is more precious than rubies...



Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

I thought that it made sense to include the last scripture with today's, as it is all part of the same thought!

In today's world, many strive for proceeds and profits, (financially, that is). How many of you genuinely believe that wisdom and understanding produce proceeds better than the profits of silver, or gain better than fine gold? You may think, "yeah, I believe that!" Let me ask you this, than. What do you put more time and effort into--gaining wisdom and understanding, or achieving financial gain...?

God Bless You!

A. The God that is alive

1 Samuel 17:26
