The Rewards of Wisdom


     A frequent item on a “Missing” poster is the reward offered by a pet owner to the person who finds and returns a beloved four-footed member of the family.  If such a reward were placed upon such a poster for wisdom, it could easily read as follows: “Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding; for her proceeds are better than the profits of silver and her gain than fine gold.  She is more precious than rubies, and all the things you may desire cannot compare with her.  Length of days is in her right hand, in her left hand are riches and honor.  Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.  She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her and happy are all who retain her” (Proverbs 3:13-18).

     To put it more succinctly, the notification may read more like this:

Missing:  Wisdom

Location:  Wherever you live

Availability:  Anyone who seeks her

Rewards:  Happiness, Genuine contentment, a Blessed life, a Pleasant and Peaceful life, Eternal Felicity

     Only a fool bypasses such a reward!
