With this wisdom you will be able to choose the right road, seek justice, and decide what is good and fair because wisdom will penetrate deep within and knowledge will become a good friend to your soul.

Proverbs 2:9-10

God’s wisdom helps us choose what is right, good, fair and just. God’s wisdom doesn’t sit just at the surface. It gets deep into your soul. I love these verses.

I also resonate with the imagery that we find God’s wisdom on a journey, a trek on which God does not compel us but empowers us to choose good. If God’s wisdom is buried deep and is found while on a journey, then God’s wisdom is always something for which we are searching. When we find it, it is like a a diamond or gold, a precious gem to value and hold dear.

Boys,

Searching for wisdom and knowledge, the divine sparks that illuminate what is truly good and just in this world, is a long and, at times, difficult task. Do it anyway. You’ll never be sorry you put in the work. No one else will be sorry either. Just the opposite.
