Proverbs 20:15 "Gold there is, and rubies in abundance, but lips that speak knowledge are a rare jewel."

I am reminded of another Proverb which says, "above all else, get wisdom". Notice that it does not say, "above all else, get happiness" or "above all else, get stuff" or even "above all else, get more information"....No, it says, "above all else, get wisdom". I've found that when I talk with someone who has sought after and found wisdom, I am refreshed by what they say to me. I've know people who are very well to do, and don't have a bit of wisdom, and I've know people who have nothing, but have all kinds of knowledge and wisdom. I'd much rather spend an hour talking with someone who has pursued wisdom, than with someone who boasts about their new toys.

Wisdom or stuff, which one are you seeking?
