I love this statement; Wise people pursue more wisdom, for wisdom is given to those who value it.
Solomon puts it like this in Proverbs 4:7 – Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding
We need to ask ourselves, How Does this Principle Apply to me?
Let’s look at the words from the world’s wisest man from the book of Proverbs to guide us on how we should value and strive for wisdom.
We must delight in wisdom
Proverbs 2:10; For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.
Proverbs 3:13; Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding,
Proverbs 24:14; Know also that wisdom is like honey for you: If you find it, there is a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.
We must desire wisdom
Proverbs 8:11; for wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her.
Proverbs 2:2; Pursue it turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding
Proverbs 28:26; Those who trust in themselves are fools, but those who walk in wisdom are kept safe.
What we delight in and desire is where our heart will be. Amen?
