BETTER – 3

WISDOM IS BETTER THAN GOLD

 

And Solomon went up to the bronze altar before the Lord, which was at the tent of meeting, and offered a thousand burnt offerings on it.   2 Chronicles 1:6 ESV


And Solomon said to God, “You have shown great and steadfast love to David my father, and have made me king in his place. O Lord God, let your word to David my father be now fulfilled, for you have made me king over a people as numerous as the dust of the earth. Give me now wisdom and knowledge to go out and come in before this people, for who can govern this people of yours, which is so great?”
  2 Chronicles 1:8-10 ESV

 

God answered Solomon, “Because this was in your heart, and you have not asked for possessions, wealth, honor, or the life of those who hate you, and have not even asked for long life, but have asked for wisdom and knowledge for yourself that you may govern my people over whom I have made you king, wisdom and knowledge are granted to you. I will also give you riches, possessions, and honor, such as none of the kings had who were before you, and none after you shall have the like.”   2 Chronicles 1:11-12 ESV


But I say that wisdom is better than might….
 Ecclesiastes 9:16 ESV


Wisdom is better than weapons of war….  Ecclesiastes 9:18 ESV

 

How much better to get wisdom than gold!
    To get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver.
  Proverbs 16:16 ESV

 

The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom,
    and whatever you get, get insight.
  Proverbs 4:7 ESV


Prize her highly, and she will exalt you;
    she will honor you if you embrace her.
  Proverbs 4:8 ESV

 

Every prudent man acts with knowledge,
    but a fool flaunts his folly.
A wicked messenger falls into trouble,
    but a faithful envoy brings healing.
Poverty and disgrace come to him who ignores instruction,
    but whoever heeds reproof is honored.
  Proverbs 13:16-18 ESV

 

Fools Act Before They Think

Fools Spend All They Earn

Fools Hurt Those They Love

The wisest of women builds her house,
    but folly with her own hands tears it down.
  Proverbs 14:1 ESV


Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.
  Proverbs 13:20 ESV

 

The way of a fool is right in his own eyes,
    but a wise man listens to advice.   Proverbs 12:15 ESV


FEAR GOD

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
    and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.
  Proverbs 9:10 ESV

 

ASK GOD

 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.   James 1:5

 

HANG OUT WITH THOSE WHO ARE WISE

Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise,
    but the companion of fools will suffer harm.
  Proverbs 13:20 ESV
