“How much better to get wisdom than gold! And to get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver”
April 25, 2020
I was interested to note in the newspaper an event when several billion dollars was physically moved from one bank to another—$7.5 billion, to be exact. And there to watch and protect was an army of one hundred policeman and guards—all with their guns, tear gas, and all forms of electronic communications—because, of course, everybody wants money, don't they? People would do anything to get their hands on that money.
I wonder, if they had a truckload of wisdom going down the street, how many policemen do you think they’d have needed to guard it?
It will be a great day in your life when you begin to seek after wisdom with the same intensity and commitment as you seek after money. Is there an idol of gold in your life? Do your savings account, your retirement fund, or your investments claim more of your attention and time than your Heavenly Father? If so, confess it. He already knows anyway. Then ask Him to empower you to restructure your priorities. Cast away any idols.
