In Proverbs ch.2 we are exhorted to get hold of Wisdom. Why would someone put such a premium on something you can’t touch, can’t sell to others – that won’t feed you or shelter you?
That’s the beauty of it – wisdom will enhance all those things. But most importantly, it will protect you.
Think about all those warning stickers that you see on household items telling you not to do stupid things with them. They are there for a reason. Sadly some people are lacking in common sense. Even more sadly, they probably won’t read the warning labels either.
Wisdom will protect you in a very real sense. It will tell you not to put yourself into situations where there is unnecessary risk.
