Better than Rubies

Better than Rubies

By Bishop Charles Agyinasare

Proverbs 8:11 For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.

In May of 2012, a 32-carat Burmese ruby and diamond ring—that was part of the collection of Lily Safra, one of the richest women in the world—was sold at an auction.

The pre-auction estimate for the sale was $3–5 million, but the final sale price ended up at $6.7 million. It is believed to be the most expensive ruby ever sold.

As valuable as rubies are, the Bible tells us that wisdom is far better and more valuable. No earthly treasure can compare to wisdom because nothing else offers the same protection, benefits, and blessings that wisdom does.

Here are 3 things to note about wisdom:

1. Wisdom will protect you

Money can get you a level of security but wisdom gives protection, according to Proverbs 4:6 (GNB): “Do not abandon wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will keep you safe.”

2. Wisdom brings happiness to him who finds it

The Bible says in Proverbs 3:13, “Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.” Do you desire happiness? Then ask God for wisdom.

3. Wisdom is with the humble

Humility and wisdom walk hand in hand. The Scripture says in Proverbs 11:2, “When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.”

Precious one, wisdom is the principal thing, and the most expensive rubies cannot be compared to it. Get wisdom today, for it is better than rubies.

Prayer : Heavenly Father, as I seek Your wisdom, let me find wisdom, happiness and security like never before, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
