Wisdom Is Supreme

Wisdom Is Supreme “5 Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or turn away from them. 6 Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. 7 The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. 8 Cherish her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you. 9 She will give you a garland to grace your head and present you with a glorious crown.” Prov 4:5-9 NIV Solomon told us that Wisdom Is Supreme. She’s more precious than rubies or gold; Long life is in her right hand, When of God’s words you lay hold. Wisdom will protect you, And she will honor your embrace. She’ll present you with a glorious crown— Your head a garland to grace. Wisdom’s ways are pleasant And her paths are those of peace. In her left hand she holds riches, That for the wise will increase. She is a tree of life to the seeker, Who, with perseverance, seeks her blessings. Lay hold of God’s words with all your heart; Obtain their wisdom, and understanding. Hold on to wisdom’s instruction— Do not ever let it go! Guard it like your life, So your blessings continue to flow. Make level paths for your feet, And guard your heart with God’s commands, For they are the beginning of wisdom; Provide what’s held in wisdom’s hands. The evil deeds of the wicked Are by their darkness ensnared. Such cords hold them fast, Lest by the Father they’re repaired. Adultery and acts of folly Are not found where wisdom reigns. Instead she leads along straight paths; Wisdom Is Supreme and leads to eternal gains. © Copyright 2012 Maureen LeFanue www.maureenlefanue.com

    we cannot see the times invisible hands have guided us out of trouble. lest we look back and ponder the things in the past. then wisdom is found in the fear of the Lord.
