Proverbs 16:16 Better to Get Wisdom than Gold

We heard it from Seneca: And what, you ask, is the fullest span of life? It is living until you possess wisdom. He who has attained wisdom has reached, not the furthermost, but the most important, goal.

And then there was the Chinese Proverb: A single conversation with a wise man is better than ten years of study.

And then a little closer to our own time were these words from Albert Einstein: Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it.

How much better to get wisdom than gold! And to get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver.

Proverbs 16:16

Acquiring wisdom should be our priority. If given the choice between raising capital or conversing with a wise one, what would you choose? Are you willing to make a lifelong attempt to possess it? Fortune comes and goes, but wisdom is not so fickle. Once you get it, you will have it forever.
