“Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her. She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee”
Today’s Morsel: The story is told of two elderly ladies that were pulled over by a State Police for driving 100 miles per hour in a 65 mile per hour speed zone. When the ladies asked the officer why he had stopped them, he politely told them they were exceeding the speed limit by 35 miles per hour. One of the ladies said the posted speed sign said it was 100 miles per hour. The office politely smiled and said, “No, Ma’am, that was the highway sign.” (humor). Solomon said that we should get wisdom and along with it get an understanding. He said that wisdom will promote you, exalt you, and bring you to honor if you embrace it. He also states, “He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul: he that keepeth understanding shall find good” (Proverbs 19:8). Do you love you? Then get wisdom.
Sing: He’s the only reason I live, and O’ what a reason. Jesus the reason I live, and O’ what a reason. There’s nothing in this world worth living for, it only leaves you empty and longing for more. He’s the only reason I live, and O’ what a reason.
Thought For Today: Always cling to wisdom (Parker).
