Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2018 April 3

“Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her” (Proverbs 3:13-18).

Today’s Morsel:  Often, when my wife asks me to help her with storing things or getting boxes out for her to decorate for certain seasons of the year, I will come across items that I had forgotten that we had. Sometimes I find items that I had misplaced or forgotten where I had placed them.  A smile usually comes across my face when I reminisce about them.  Solomon said, "Happy is the man that findeth wisdom."  It seems today that so many have lost this precious trait of character, as we see by the many despondent or depressed faces.  Have you lost your wisdom? She dwells with prudence.  If you’ve lost her, why not seek for her, because who so findeth wisdom findeth life, and shall obtain favor of the Lord.

Sing: Deeper, deeper in the love of Jesus daily let me go; higher, higher in the school of wisdom, more of grace to know.
O’ deeper yet I pray, and higher every day; and wiser, blessed Lord, in Thy precious holy word.

Thought For Today:  Happy is the man that finds wisdom and the man that gets understanding.
