16 How much better to get wisdom than gold, to get insight rather than silver!

Proverbs 16:16


To be wise is a gift from God himself. Over and over again, we can look to scripture to help us find wisdom for any and every situation. I read a quote that says – Easy Is The Path of Wisdom for Those Not Blinded By Ego – and it got me thinking of how many times we put our egos before our faith.


We want to be in control. We want to take charge. We want to have all of the answers, but we would be fools to believe that we can hold all that power and knowledge without the help of Jesus.


I understand the motive behind Ego. It’s almost like a shield of protection. You rather be in control so that you don’t get hurt, but the reality of the situation is that God is asking to be our protector. He is asking us to do life His way. If we humble ourselves, we can reap the beautiful benefits of allowing God to be the one in control.


When we surrender our needs, we gain a deeper appreciation and understanding of the things around us.


Like this verse says, insight is far greater than silver. It sounds counterproductive, we have to relinquish our need for control, our need for information, and in return, we gain insight. It’s because we associate information with insight when that is all wrong. The insight God is promising us isn’t the information we seek, but rather peace in knowing we’re safe in His kingdom. 



Jesus helps us reframe from the need for control. Different situations may come about that prompt us to take the reins from you. We ask that you remind us on this beautiful Tuesday that you have it all under control. Remind us that wisdom is far greater than gold. Remind us that to be wise is to allow our humility to shine through, so humble us. Help us to be better every day. We love and honor you; we ask that you bless this day and the week ahead of us. It is in your Holy name that we pray, AMEN!
