Proverbs 3:15 (VOICE) No gem is more precious than she is— your most extravagant desire doesn’t come close to her.
Beloved, the earthly things you value pale in comparison to wisdom that comes from Me. For true wisdom brings freedom and hope, power and life, so resist the urge to marginalize it or treat it as something you can lightly choose not to embrace.
One who is wise embraces wisdom. Those who do not, cloak themselves in foolishness and bring ruin upon themselves. I desire that you choose wisdom because I understand the the negative consequences if you do not. And though I want you to choose well, the choice still belongs to you. So choose wisely, beloved.
Proverbs 3:13-20 (VOICE) How fortunate are those who discover Lady Wisdom and those who understand her ways! For her worth is greater than the most expensive prize you could win. Her profit is greater than the finest thing you could buy. No gem is more precious than she is— your most extravagant desire doesn’t come close to her. She holds the secret of a long life in one hand and riches and fame in her other hand. Her ways are pleasant; all of her pathways are peaceful. She is like a tree that produces a satisfied life for anyone who can wrap their arms around her; happiness waits for any who hold her tightly. It was by wisdom that the Eternal fashioned the earth and by understanding that He designed the heavens. Through His knowledge, the deep was divided into seas and sky, and the clouds understood when to let down the morning dew.
