“Wisdom is the principal thing..."
"Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding. Exalt her, and she will promote you;" (Proverbs 4:7-8)
Is that not the cry of our hearts? To be promoted into His presence, promoted for Kingdom use, promoted from death to life?
Then get wisdom for "She will bring you honor, when you embrace her. She will place on your head an ornament of grace; A crown of glory she will deliver to you.” (Proverbs 4:8-9)
But how? “But where can wisdom be found? And where is the place of understanding? Man does not know its value, Nor is it found in the land of the living." (Job 28:12-13)
It cannot be found in the land of the living because it is not of this world...“From where then does wisdom come? And where is the place of understanding?...God understands its way, And He knows its place."(Job 28:20,23)
"AND TO MAN HE SAID, ‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom, And to depart from evil is understanding.”
True and reverent fear of the Lord will turn your eyes and desires from worthless, sinful things. This is understanding and wisdom in its purest form! We are to exalt the King of kings and fear the Lord of all wisdom and in this we are exalted and given a crown and ornament of grace!
