This is so good as well. I especially like the action line at the bottom.


Joyful is the person who finds wisdom, the one who gains understanding. For wisdom is more profitable than silver, and her wages are better than gold.
Proverbs 3:13-14 NLT

Monday 19 April

Proverbs spends a lot of time reflecting on wealth and the question is – where can you find it? I find it fascinating that the writer often speaks of the preciousness of silver and gold. Some things don’t change. Last year, when the Covid crisis started biting, the price of silver and gold shot up, as people looked for a safe haven for their wealth. Isn’t it fascinating that after thousands of years, even though the world has changed out of all recognition, people are still trying to find safety in the same place?

But true wealth lies elsewhere. The writer of Proverbs is convinced that what really matters is wisdom and that needs to be treasured far more than any possessions, beautiful and impressive as they might seem to be. Possessions try to persuade us that they can give us everything that we need to live fulfilled lives, but the writer is clear that wisdom alone unlocks the door to life. Without it we stumble around without any sense of direction or purpose, and that kind of wisdom can only be found through an intimate and growing relationship with God.

Wisdom in the book of Proverbs is always intensely practical. Wisdom opens the door to a life of peace, love and joy and it does so by enabling us to make good decisions whatever our circumstances. It enables us to live at peace with those around us, and to use our own gifts and opportunities effectively. Wisdom enables us to live justly and responsibly in society and prevents us from falling for the temptations which continually try to lure us away from God’s path. Wisdom never calls us to a life of dull bookishness but rather to a life that is full of vitality and hope. But none of that happens without a determination to share every aspect of life with our loving God who is the source of all wisdom.

QUESTION

In what way do you need God’s wisdom today?

PRAYER

God our Father, you are the source of all wisdom. Give me a growing longing to be wise and a desire to let you shape all my thinking and actions day by day. Amen
