I prayed, and prudence was given me;
I pleaded , and the spirit of wisdom came to me.
I preferred her to scepter and throne,
and deemed riches nothing in comparison with her;
nor did I liken any priceless gem to her;
because all gold, in view of her, is a little sand,
and before her, silver is to be accounted mire.
Beyond health and comeliness I loved her,
and I chose to have her rather than the light,
because the splendor of her never yields to sleep.
yet all good things together came to me in her company,
and countless riches at her hand.
I wish I had found this when I was younger... it is more precious.
But we think linearly and monetarily and we forget that the abstract concepts that we have in our hearts and minds will be with us in this form or in the one we take when we are finished here. I tried to read the BOOK front to back and never got to the seasoning.
Taste and see the goodness of the Lord.
