According to the book of ancient wisdom itself:
Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. (Proverbs 4:7)
and here’s more to why:
Proverbs chapter 3
13 HAPPY is the man who finds wisdom, And the man who gains understanding; 14 For her PROCEEDS are better than the profits of silver, And her GAIN than fine gold. 15 She is more precious than rubies, And all the things you may desire cannot compare with her. 16 Length of days is in her right hand, In her left hand RICHES and HONOR. 17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness, And all her paths are PEACE. 18 She is a tree of LIFE to those who take hold of her, And HAPPY are all who retain her. 19 The Lord by wisdom founded the earth; By understanding He established the heavens; 20 By His knowledge the depths were broken up, And clouds drop down the dew. 21 My son, let them not depart from your eyes– Keep sound wisdom and discretion; 22 So they will be LIFE to your soul And GRACE to your neck. 23 Then you will walk SAFELY in your way, And your foot will not stumble. 24 When you lie down, you will not be afraid; Yes, you will lie down and YOUR SLEEP WILL BE SWEET.
Once you get WISDOM, you also get:
What a package! But wisdom is not cheap, it may cost all you have! Nevertheless, it says proceeds are better than profits of silver or gains of fine gold. Looks like wisdom is a wise investment.
