Daily Verse: “She is more precious than jewels, and nothing you desire can compare with her.” Proverbs 3:15

Solomon calls wisdom a “she” in this verse.  Wisdom has more value than wealth and riches because it yields power, influence, and respect, the gifts of life.  The author refers to wisdom as the “tree of life” because it brings vitality and the fullness of life with it.

To have a long and beneficial life, one must embrace wisdom.  Foolish acts lead to difficult and even shortened lives.

Wisdom says taking care of our bodies will lead to a better quality of daily life.  Foolishness says I can do whatever I want without consequences.  But everything has consequences, including our daily decisions in how we treat our bodies.  We can either make life-giving choices or life-taking ones.

Choose to live life fully by embracing God’s wisdom.  Seek the Lord daily, letting His knowledge guide and direct you.  Enjoy every moment as you let wisdom lead the way.

Lord, forgive us for our foolish notions.  Help us seek Your wisdom and follow it.  Let us have a full life as we follow Your ways.  Give us the wisdom and discernment we need for today.  IJNIP.  Amen
