Proverbs 4
Author: Matthew Killough

What is the most you have ever saved in order to purchase something? Did you save enough to buy the latest electronic gizmo to wear on your wrist? Did you save enough to take your family on a dream vacation? Did you save enough for a new car or even a house? There are literally millions of stories of people who have saved money to purchase what they desire. Some of these stories seem insignificant and many are surprising. The vast majority, however, are about purchases that will soon lose most of their value. That gizmo on your wrist is nice now but it is worth less than half of what you paid a year from now. That dream vacation: over in just a few short days.

The author of Proverbs 4 gives alternate advice: the thing you should pay the most for is simple: wisdom. Make no mistake the cost is high according to Proverbs 4:7, “The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it costs all you have, get understanding.”

So consider making a prudent investment that benefits all aspects of your life life: consider getting wisdom. Also, remember what your grandmother always told you, “You get what you pay for!”
