Interesting to note a lot of support for the fact that money does not make one happy. However, there is not a lot said of what does make one happy. Can wisdom – coming to the point of understanding – really make a person more happy and deliver more profit than silver, gold, and jewels? Is there nothing to compare it too?
I have seen wisdom give people honour – more so than someone who is wealthy. I have seen wisdom give people discernment and direction while the one who is wealthy makes all kinds of mistakes and takes on more loss than gain. I have seen wisdom bring peace and blessing into a room where wealth brought division and strife.
Wisdom has something about it that does not take, but gives. They say the giver is always more happy than the receiver.
