THE VALUE OF WISDOM – Proverbs 23:4-5, Matthew 16:24-26, Proverbs 3:14-15 (KJV)
14 For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.
15 She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.
THE BENEFITS OF WISDOM
Proverbs 3:16-18 (KJV)
16 Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour.
17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.
18 She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.
AN EXAMPLE OF WISDOM

21 My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion:
THE SECURITY OF WISDOM
Proverbs 3:22-26 (KJV)
22 So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck.
23 Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble.
24 When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.
25 Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh.
26 For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.
