Proverbs 3:14 (VOICE) For her worth is greater than the most expensive prize you could win. Her profit is greater than the finest thing you could buy.
Beloved, that which you esteem as valuable and important, you will make time for. You will be persistent in its pursuit. You will cherish it when it is gained. You hold it dear and won’t take it lightly.
If you esteem wisdom, you value all it brings. You don’t careless dismiss it, or shrug it off when it’s spoken. You receive it. You hold it fast. You seek to understand it and determine what to do with it. For it is not enough to seek wisdom, you must value it as well.
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.
