The Word of God says many things about how great it is to have wisdom. Wisdom is better than gold, silver, rubies, precious jewels, strength, and weapons of war. How much better it will be for you to ask and seek God’s wisdom rather than all the riches and power the world has to offer!
Even if you have little knowledge and strength, the wisdom God gives will prove to be more profitable than all the rest! Seek God’s wisdom and use it. Your life will be transformed from falling into all the foolish traps of this world, to avoid those harmful pitfalls. By following the ways of the Lord, He will direct your steps in all your ways. Your eyes will be opened and those things that pulled you down in the past, those same tricks and schemes of the devil will have no effect on you anymore.
Don’t worry if men neglect to notice you, or the work you are doing for the Lord. Their opinions don’t matter. It is the acknowledgment of the Lord and His approval that is best. If they ridicule you, it is their own foolishness. In the end, you will be honored by the Lord and they will be seen for who they really are.
13 I have also seen this example of wisdom under the sun, and it seemed great to me. 14 There was a little city with few men in it, and a great king came against it and besieged it, building great siege works against it. 15 But there was found in it a poor, wise man, and he by his wisdom delivered the city. Yet no one remembered that poor man. 16 But I say that wisdom is better than might, though the poor man’s wisdom is despised and his words are not heard. 17 The words of the wise heard in quiet are better than the shouting of a ruler among fools. 18 Wisdom is better than weapons of war, but one sinner destroys much good.
