FOCAL TEXT: Ecclesiastes 7 vs 12►► “For wisdom is a defence, and money is a defence: but the excellency of knowledge is, that wisdom gives life to them that have it.”~| KJV |_____________________________________
SHALOM greetings, Cherished one. We’ve learnt that money is a defence. However, it doesn’t matter the great essence of money, it has some limitations; money cannot give eternal life, divine health, wisdom, grace, mercy, righteousness, eternal peace etc. But wisdom is a defence, gives life and offers many treasures (Proverbs 3:1 ff). *Wisdom has defended many from pains, shame, struggles, poverty and deaths.* Beloved, wisdom gives many advantages over money. Therefore, seek wisdom in all your affairs (Prov 4:7).
Yes, you need wisdom to make durable riches or wealth. A person with money and no wisdom has no better future. His life is oblique and short sighted; but a man with wisdom and money can transform his world tremendously.* Money above wisdom is chaos, corruption and incite all manner of evil and wickedness. Money without wisdom is poverty in disguise. Wealth without wisdom is destructive because the prosperity of fools shall destroy them (Proverbs 1:32).
