What I Treasure

Gold and Silver

Choose my instruction rather than silver, and knowledge rather than pure gold. For wisdom is far more valuable than rubies. Nothing you desire can compare with it.
(Proverbs 8:10, 11)

I tell people my hobby is accumulating wisdom.
I can use wisdom to make me money. Or I can use money to open greater opportunities to accumulate wisdom. I can purchase good books, attend high quality conferences, and surround myself with excellent mentors.
I can use people to help me make money. Or I can use money to make life better for people.
Money is the most valuable treasure on earth. The more I have, the more I can purchase. Wisdom and people are heaven’s most valuable treasures. Weighed in the balance, I can only use one to purchase the other.
When I look at it that way, I’m going to use money to get me more wisdom and make life better for the people I love.
