How much better to get wisdom than gold,to get insight rather than silver!
It was a small thing, really.
I wanted to wash dishes so I began running the water and squirting dishwashing liquid into the water.
Something wasn’t right, though.
The sink wasn’t filling up with water.
Checking further, I found that I had neglected to put the stopper in the drain.
The water and the detergent were simply flowing down the drain, missing my purpose for them entirely.
I know I need wisdom.
Being a wise person surely means more than having money.
Sometimes, I can imagine that my efforts–though good intentionally–are flowing down the drain.
If that’s happening, I’ve probably not remembered something—I need to pray about those efforts and see if I have forgotten to ask God if that’s what He wants for me right then.
