Gold, Silver and Wisdom

Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold.
~ Proverbs 3:13-14 (NIV)

It's a hard time of year when school is quickly approaching and money is receding like the tide. I love this verse, because it equates spending money on wisdom to investing, much like investing in gold and silver. The yield of investing in wisdom is greater than the return from investing the usual way.

Sometimes, even with the best planning, attending college will require some "investing in wisdom" with student loans. If you have a senior, and you're looking at the cost of college, consider this verse. Now, I'm not a big fan of loans and debt in general, but it does seem like wisdom is worth it. It's not "spending money" on college. It's "investing money" on wisdom.
