For wisdom is better than rubies, and all the things one may desire cannot be compared with her.
What do we value most? What do humans treasure? Often the most valuable things are the rare and precious and beautiful and lasting things like jewels and gold and silver.
But from God’s perspective, there is something much more valuable than diamonds, rubies and emeralds. The ability to think like God—to make good decisions, to know how to build good relationships, to understand God’s way and His plan—is of incomparably greater value than anything else we could want. In fact, having God’s wisdom is the only way to receive these other things we want—along with the ability to really and eternally enjoy them!
