Lesson 58

Wisdom is a virtue that keeps on giving.

I walk in the way of righteousness,
along the paths of justice,

bestowing wealth on those who love me
and making their treasuries full. (Proverbs 8:20-21 NIV)

She only walks with those that have given themselves over to her and follow God’s lead. Where there is true justice you will find wisdom. Looking at those in authority, how many can you honestly say is full of wisdom? Do they hand out justice fairly?

Wisdom is also one that hands out wealth to those who surrender to her. We visited once before what wealth is, but let’s take another look at it. What do you consider wealth? Money in the bank, solid stock portfolio, lots of possessions? Or does it include friends, opportunities to achieve dreams, a chance to live where others only dream of living?

What are you hoping to get from wisdom? Are you willing to let wisdom bestow the perfect treasure on you no matter what it is?
