The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom

“The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.” ~Proverbs 4:7

In other words, the first step to becoming wise is to look for wisdom, so use everything you have to get understanding. This sounds familiar…fast forward to the parables of Jesus in Matthew 13:44 -46

“God's kingdom is like a treasure hidden in a field. One day a man found the treasure. He hid it again and was so happy that he went and sold everything he owned and bought the field. Also, God's kingdom is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. One day he found a very fine pearl. He went and sold everything he had to buy it.”

That Pearl is Jesus. That Treasure is Jesus.

Scholar F.B.Meyer explains, “The parables of treasure and pearl are a pair. They describe the various ways we come to know God’s truth. Some happen on it suddenly. They are pursuing the ordinary vocations of life when suddenly the ploughshare rings against a box of buried treasure. The husbandman is suddenly rich beyond his dreams.
But in other cases religion is the result of diligent search. Man cannot be happy without God. He goes from philosophy to philosophy, from system to system, turning the pearls on the dealer’s trays; but suddenly his listlessness is transformed to eagerness as he discovers the Christ. Here is the pearl of great price. He has sought and found, and is prepared to renounce all. “

In Romans 14:17, “The Kingdom of God is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit”; that is here and now, not some distant future. The parable shows us that Jesus brings us the Kingdom of God. He is Wisdom, the greatest of treasures. Seek Him and you will find. Get Wisdom - sounds like an advertising jingle, doesn't it? Maybe it is...

Have a blessed day!
