Why Wisdom Is Better Than Wealth

Money can buy pleasures. But it cannot buy character. Money cannot purchase a good reputation. It cannot purchase a pure, meaningful relationship with God. Money is volatile and fleeting. But wisdom is eternal. It not only brings peace of mind and joy. It gains us the priceless favor of the Lord. "For wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with it." (Prov. 8: 11). "Better is little with the fear of the Lord than great treasure and trouble with it" (Prov. 15: 16)
