The Value of Wisdom


On a recent trip to Washington, D.C., we took a bus tour of the city. As our guide informed us of the significance of the sights we were seeing, he pointed out a larger-than-life statue of Albert Einstein. We quickly noticed that the nose of the famous scientist was much shinier than the rest of the statue. Our guide said that this is because many visitors touch Einstein’s nose, hoping that some of his knowledge and wisdom will rub off on them.


I have doubts about the effectiveness of this practice. However, the Bible makes it plain that we are to diligently seek the knowledge and wisdom of God.


“Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.”—Proverbs 4:7.


Have you read your Bible today?
