Benefits of Wisdom – Her ways are very pleasant and all her paths are peaceful

proverbs3-17

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.

  1. Hi Ade,
    great description of wisdom.
    For a change it is the female gender asigned to to wisdom in the proverb, which is good to know.

    I like how you say “When you are wise, you tend to know when to say no and when to say yes!”

    Maturity is probably closely related to wisdom.
    And maturity comes from the inner work which is related to examine the conditioning we have taken on and reparent and reprogram ourselves so we can live an empowered life.

    Thank you for sharing your insights.

    1. Thanks Yorinda for dropping by. Wisdom is personified in the female gender all over proverbs!
