The Gold Rush!

“So that you incline your ear to wisdom, And apply your heart to understanding...If you seek her as silver, And search for her as for hidden treasures”-Proverbs 2:2-4
When searching or mining for gold, silver or diamonds it requires diligence and hard work. There is a potential reward yet you also run the risk of finding nothing. However even at the opportunity to increase their wealth people will often spare no expense.
Solomon gives the example to search for wisdom with the same motivation as for "silver or treasures". He's indicating the desire we should have to seek the true riches of wisdom. And why not? We are guaranteed a reward from Him to give to all liberally.
Wisdom is richer then any substance we could find to gain wealth... The wisdom of God is to "understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God... from His mouth comes knowledge and understanding”-Proverbs 2:5-6
Let the "God Rush" begin!
