God’s wisdom is treasure

 

Our Daily Bread Ministries

[Wisdom] is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold.

Proverbs 3:14

Buried treasure. It sounds like something out of a children’s storybook. But eccentric millionaire Forrest Fenn claims to have left a box of jewels and gold, worth up to $2 million, somewhere in the Rocky Mountains. Many people have gone in search of it. In fact, four people have lost their lives trying to find the hidden riches.

The author of Proverbs gives us reason to stop and think: Does any kind of treasure merit such a quest? In Proverbs 4, a father writing to his sons about how to live well suggests that wisdom is one thing worth seeking at any cost (v. 7). Wisdom, he says, will lead us through life, keep us from stumbling, and crown us with honor (vv. 8-12). Writing hundreds of years later, James, half-brother of Jesus and leader in the early church, also emphasized the importance of wisdom. “The wisdom that comes from heaven,” he writes, “is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere” (James 3:17). When we seek wisdom, we find all kinds of good things flourishing in our lives.

To seek wisdom is ultimately to seek God, the source of all wisdom and understanding. And the wisdom that comes from above is worth more than any buried treasure we could ever imagine.

In Proverbs 4, Solomon encourages his sons to pursue wisdom and then emphasizes its benefits. Wisdom will watch over and protect (v. 6). She will exalt and honor the one who finds her (v. 8). She will adorn those who find her with “garland” and a “crown”—symbols of respect and dignity (v. 9). She will keep those who pursue her from stumbling and from stepping on the path of evildoers (vv. 12, 14). With all these benefits, it’s no wonder we’re to pursue wisdom no matter the cost. It’s worth everything we have (v. 7). J.R. Hudberg

My Declaration : I Believe

God is the creator of this universe, 
And Jesus Christ was sent to save the world, 
And all things that was written in the Bible, 
In Alpha and Omega, the start and the end of everything, 
All space and time is predestined, 
Unless it has been interfered by God, 
That Adam and Eve is our ancestors, 
And there was only one race, one religion, one language, 
From the very beginning. 
All powers and principalities, 
Are placed by God, 
Even unto persecution or death, 
We will have to carry out our cross, 
Salvation will only come, 
When we run a good race, 
And we should not seek violence, 
To solve a problem, 
The Holy Spirit, our guide to the Truth, 
And Man is the head of the family, 
The Pastor/priest is head of the Church, 
And Jesus Christ is the Messiah of the Church. 
In the new age, 
There will be a new heaven and earth, 
Derived from the old, 
That Death will be over, 
There will not be any sorrow, 
Darkness will be over, 
There will be no nightfall, 
There will be Light always, 
Mankind will reap what they sow, 
There will be abundant food and drinks, 
More than your heart desires, 
The Transformation will bring, 
And Mankind will be lord over, 
Time and Space, 
And Travel will be but in a twinkling of an eye. 
And Man will live forever, 
In the presence of God.

I am the Watchman/Silent Warrior in End Times preparing for Jesus return

I am the Eye in the Sky

With today’s satellite imagery, 
I can have a bird’s eye view, 
Of every city, 
Every movement of every traffic, 
And I know the intimate details, 
Every rail, bus or car can hold, 
I do not need, 
Very exact details, 
Just an estimate, 
To get my job done. 
Now imagine, 
If I merge this information, 
With every business estate, 
And I combine this, 
With every residential estate, 
I will know the heartbeat, 
Of any city I want to study. 
If I have furthur info, 
Of every sector of business, 
The volume of business generated, 
The income of every residential household, 
And their pattern of expenditure, 
I would have enough info, 
To built a view of a model, 
Where I can change any factors, 
To create my ideal model, 
To maximise the potential of income. 
And if I get the info, 
Of any sector of a business process, 
I will know how to tabulate, 
And fill in to the greater picture, 
And thru a series of fact finding, 
I will generate an insight no one has ever seen, 
Creating my business intelligence, 
Into any sector I chose
