Prov 24:13-14,“My son, eat honey, for it is good, yes, the honey from the comb is sweet to your taste; 14Know that wisdom is thus for your soul; If you find it, then there will be a future, and your hope will not be cut off.”
Vs. 14, “Profit” SACHAR“Commerce or gain.” The acquisition of Bible doctrine to experience is better than the most valuable commodities of this world.
Is not wisdom worth at least the same investment of time, effort and energy, as the riches of this world since it is more valuable than them all combined? Cf. Eph 3:14-21.
Wisdom’s value does not fluctuate based on circumstances or the stock market. It does not tarnish, it cannot be stolen and it is not used up. Mat 6:19-21; cf. 1 Cor 9:25-27; James 5:1-6
The believer must not to be misled into thinking that the pursuit of these things is more important than the pursuit of wisdom. If a choice must be made, choose wisdom, cf. Prov 4:5, 7; 8:10-11, 19; 16:16.
“Compares” - SHAWAH You cannot name anything in life that is more important than God’s Word. If you have Bible doctrine then you have everything.
