Wisdom – Wed – 22-09-21

Which market do you follow? There are several. Most are aware of the stock market. Each night the news reports on the overall gains and losses of the market, citing a major index like the Dow Jones Average, the S&P 500 or the NASDAQ. In addition, reports air about the gains or losses of local companies.  Many people also follow the currency exchange market. They may invest in Bitcoin, Ethereum or some other crypto currency. Farmers usually follow the commodities market. The price of corn, wheat, soybeans or animals directly affects their business decisions. All of us keep our ears open for movement in the crude oil prices. We hope it goes down so gasoline becomes less expensive.

Then there is gold and silver. These precious metals become havens for investors in difficult times. Did you know that the price of gold has raised 30% in the past five years? And that silver doubled in price between the March of 2020 and March of 2021? But there is something that has a greater return.

Proverbs 3:13-15 says, “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. She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her.”

Don’t chase some market and forget the greatest return of all comes from investing ourselves in God’s wisdom.
