Happy is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gets understanding. For her good profit is better than getting silver, and her return is better than fine gold.
Throughout Jesus’ three-year ministry here on earth, He could be heard to say things like, “I am the way, the truth, and the life….” and “How difficult it will be for those who are wealthy to enter the Kingdom of Heaven”. We also read in Proverbs that true wealth is found in a heart that is at peace and in loving, genuine relationships you can count on.
These words tell us that the things the world encourages us to go after are nothing compared to the spiritual wealth that comes from knowing God and living for him. Why? Because when we live for God, we will be rich in His blessings. We will be blessed with God’s protection, comfort, courage, confidence, and His provision. Yes, when we value understanding God over money, God will make sure we have everything we need…and more.
