Get Insight

How much better to get wisdom than gold,to get insight rather than silver!

—Proverbs 16:16

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. 

Doing what God wants is worth more than silver or gold. 

Give

Give, and it will be given to you.

A good measure,

pressed down,

shaken together

and running over,

will be poured into your lap.

For with the measure you use,

it will be measured to you.

—Luke 6:38
