UNIFYING LESSON PRINCIPLE:
People search for life’s meaning through wealth, wisdom, or other worldly things. What is the best method to search for meaning in life? Wisdom’s treasure is more valuable than riches because it can center a person’s heart, will, and thoughts toward having knowledge of God.
There are some types of clothing that can only be worn during certain seasons of the year. However, there are other types of clothing that are considered “all-season” and can be worn year-round. Wisdom is one of those all-season types of garments than can and should be worn all throughout the year. The type of wisdom that we need for living comes only from God. An ounce of wisdom is worth more than a pound of wealth or fame. One need not grow old in order to appreciate and utilize the power of wisdom in life.
LORD, thank you for the gift of wisdom. May this powerful trait permeate our thoughts, our speech, and our actions for as long as we shall live. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
