What are the benefits of wisdom?
There are so many benefits of wisdom. In the book of Proverbs we see wisdom personified and her benefits listed poeticallly!
Long life is in her right hand;
in her left hand are riches and honor.
Her ways are very pleasant,
and all her paths are peaceful.
She is like a tree of life to those who obtain her,
and everyone who grasps hold of her will be blessed
Proverbs 2:17-18 (NET)
Here it is again in everyday language
Wisdom will help you have a long and fruitful life with lots of riches and honor. A wise person will eat right, threat their body right, go to the right places and operate with the right people. When you are wise, you tend to know when to say no and when to say yes!
Wisdom will teach you to be pleasant and will help you to attract pleasant people. It will enable you to live in peace with the people around you! With wisdom you will be able to avoid unnecessary conflicts and hence live a peaceful and joyful life. Wise people seem to have good things happen to them, they seem to always get favored and blessed because wise people are always able to prepare for and seize opportunities when the come around.
