13 Blessed is the one who finds wisdom,
and the one who gets understanding,
Blessed Is the One Who Finds Wisdom
14 for the gain from her is better than gain from silver
and her profit better than gold.
15 She is more precious than jewels,
and nothing you desire can compare with her.
16 Long life is in her right hand;
in her left hand are riches and honor.
17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness,
and all her paths are peace.
18 She is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her;
those who hold her fast are called blessed.
19 The Lord by wisdom founded the earth;
by understanding he established the heavens;
20 by his knowledge the deeps broke open,
and the clouds drop down the dew.
21 My son, do not lose sight of these—
keep sound wisdom and discretion,
22 and they will be life for your soul
and adornment for your neck.
23 Then you will walk on your way securely,
and your foot will not stumble.
24 If you lie down, you will not be afraid;
when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
25 Do not be afraid of sudden terror
or of the ruin of the wicked, when it comes,
26 for the Lord will be your confidence
and will keep your foot from being caught.
27 Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due,
when it is in your power to do it.
28 Do not say to your neighbor, “Go, and come again,
tomorrow I will give it”—when you have it with you.
29 Do not plan evil against your neighbor,
who dwells trustingly beside you.
30 Do not contend with a man for no reason,
when he has done you no harm.
31 Do not envy a man of violence
and do not choose any of his ways,
32 for the devious person is an abomination to the Lord,
but the upright are in his confidence.
33 The Lord’s curse is on the house of the wicked,
but he blesses the dwelling of the righteous.
34 Toward the scorners he is scornful,
but to the humble he gives favor.
35 The wise will inherit honor,
but fools get disgrace.-Proverbs 3:13-35
My dear friends,brothers and sisters we can have everything for ourselves ,happiness,joys and true love but not from this suffering earth.
What we possess depends upon our knowledge and wisdom and we cannot find true wisdom in anything that belongs to this earth because an earth which is already spoiled with all the filth and wastes of its inhabitants cannot give us true wisdom.
Have you ever heard of a sick or ailing and weak person making others happy ?Have you ever heard of a poverty stricken person making another happy with gold and silver?
No,it’s absurd because to give something to someone one has to have that for himself.Now when we are living in a world devoid of true peace,true love,true kindness and charity we cannot expect it for ourselves.
A poor world it is,sobbing for it’s neglected,abandoned and cursed children so it cannot help us with peace,love,joy and true wisdom.
So let’s ask the owner of true wisdom to make all of us wise so that we can be blessed with true discernment for wisdom and knowledge not of this world but of heaven and be happy for ever and ever.
