When we seek wisdom, we are striving to learn and grow in our knowledge and experience. The more we learn the greater the impact on our perspective and our attitude. This increase in knowledge and shaping of our perspective also will help us gain understanding for many circumstances and situations in our daily life. To put it another way…don’t assume something or judge others based on a social media post or a headline or as they used to say when I was younger…don’t judge a book by its cover. Seek wisdom, seek to gain understanding. Amen.
“Blessed are those who find wisdom,
those who gain understanding,
14 for she is more profitable than silver
and yields better returns than gold.
15 She is more precious than rubies;
nothing you desire can compare with her.
16 Long life is in her right hand;
in her left hand are riches and honor.
17 Her ways are pleasant ways,
and all her paths are peace.
18 She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her;
those who hold her fast will be blessed.”
