Valuable Wisdom

Today's reading: Proverbs 3:13-35

In the second half of Proverbs 3 Solomon turns to wisdom, a subject he was certainly knowledgeable about being the wisest man to ever live (see I Kings 3:1-12). So in verses 13-35, Solomon schools us a bit on wisdom, giving us three different looks at this valuable quality.

  • Look 1: Verses 13-18 lay out before us the value of wisdom—better than gain from silver and gold, more precious than jewels, bringing pleasantness and peace, being a tree of life to her possessors.
  • Look 2: Verses 19-20 highlight God’s wisdom from the perspective of His creation.
  • Look 3: Then in verses 21-35 we are given practical instruction on wise living, paired with benefits of living wisely and rightly—life to our soul, helps us walk securely and not be afraid.

What benefits from possessing wisdom stood out to you from Proverbs 3:13-35, and why? What motivation do you draw from knowing that “the wise will inherit honor” (vs. 35)? How are you seeking and pursuing wisdom? Tami
