“Wisdom is a shelter as money is a shelter, but the advantage of knowledge is this: Wisdom preserves those who have it. (Ecclesiastes 7:12, NIV)
While many in this world pursue wealth because of its apparent security, Ecclesiastes reminds us that — compared to wisdom — money is an inferior shelter.
Money cannot add years to our life, but wisdom will add life to our years. Money cannot reveal the secrets of life; but if a person acquires wisdom, life’s secrets are revealed.
To live according to God’s wisdom is to have all of the things that money cannot buy. – Luther
