Ecclesiastes 7:11-14 Wisdom, like an inheritance, is a good thing and benefits those who see the sun. Wisdom is a shelter as money is a shelter, but the advantage of knowledge is this:Wisdom preserves those who have it. Consider the work of God: for who can make that straight, which he hath made crooked? In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him.
I chose these verses today because they say it all. How can we not live without wisdom. Followed by understanding. And to have both it is the work of the most high. Our Almighty God.
