I prayed, and prudence was given me; I pleaded, and the spirit of wisdom came to me. I preferred her to scepter and throne, and deemed riches nothing in comparison with her, nor did I liken any priceless gem to her; because all gold, in view of her, is a little sand, and before her, silver is to be accounted mire. Beyond health and comeliness I loved her, and I chose to have her rather than the light, because the splendor of her never yields to sleep. Yet all good things together came to me in her company, and countless riches at her hands.
When we have wisdom, we have all we need in life. Wisdom helps us to discern God’s will, to know what is right and wrong and it leads you to the heart of the Lord. When given the chance, wisdom should be asked for and embraced. Do you want wisdom? Ask and she will show you the way.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, wisdom has helped me when my other senses have betrayed me. Thank you for the spirit of wisdom to know you better. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
Fill us with your love, O Lord, and we will sing for joy!
