Personally, King Solomon taught me in his wisdom literature, and he said to me, "Take hold of my words with all your heart; keep my commands, and you will live. Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or turn away from them. Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding." Simply put, get them at all cost.

Reference: Proverbs 3:13-14 The Voice (VOICE) "How fortunate are those who discover Lady Wisdom and those who understand her ways! For her worth is greater than the most expensive prize you could win. Her profit is greater than the finest thing you could buy."

For those who truly want to learn and understand the wisdom of God, you must do well to be thoroughly informed about how sacred the things of the Spirit I teach is. The above Scripture is God's breathed, and not my words, and in this case, it's useful for teaching and training in righteousness. When led by the Holy Spirit to teach some certain truths in the Scripture, be smart and alert to pay attention to the accurate understanding being revealed and refuse to joke with such realities. In fact, refuse to be profane like Esau. So there is a reason King Solomon personified wisdom using a feminine appearance and we are about to find out.

Discovering godly wisdom is like locating a precious commodity and a lasting (or eternal) treasure. Why Lady wisdom? Why not Sir/Gentleman/Lord Wisdom? Remember that King David and Solomon spoke Hebrew as a language, which is a Semitic dialect from a branch of Semitic family tree. And in Hebrew grammar, the noun word assigned to wisdom is hakmot, which is a feminine gender. For this reason, Solomon taught his son wisdom with the sense of "mother-son" relationship, in terms of a strong bond between a mother and her son that makes him feel secure, confident and safe. To that effect, Solomon mostly regarded wisdom as a godly lady who had an adequate caring and protective attitude for her child. She can give her children utmost personal attention. More so, the attitude we are meant to have for wisdom is likened to Christ's love for the church, with the sense of a husband loving his wife, just as Christ loved the church. And I'll shed light on this revelation in part 3.

In today's article, I'm going to break down the benefits that accompany godly wisdom according to verses 15-18, in this manner:

1. No gem is more precious than she is: In other words, all varieties of precious stone, varying from deep crimson or purple to pale rose, are valueless when it comes to divine wisdom.

2. Your most extravagant desire doesn't come close to her: In other words, there is nothing else you desire in life that can compare with her.

3. She holds the secret of a long life in one hand: Wisdom can satisfy you with long life with her right hand.

4. And riches and fame in her other hand: Wisdom will bestow riches and honour upon your life.

5. Her ways are pleasant: Wisdom gives you a sense of delight and fulfilment.

6. All of her pathways are peaceful: In other words, wisdom can afford you an anxiety-free life because of its serene effect or quality.

7. She is like a tree that produces a satisfied life for anyone who can wrap their arms around her: Beloved, fornication and adultery are still evil in the sight of God, and so, this Scripture is not in anyway promoting sexual immorality. It's simply a figurative speech, which implies that when it comes to divine wisdom, investing your emotions in such treasure is worth it. This is because if you obtain wisdom and take hold of her, without letting go, you have possessed the tree of life.

8. Happiness waits for any who hold her tightly: Here Solomon is talking about sustenance. In other words, if you sustain wisdom, you'll be extremely happy and blessed for the rest of your life (see Proverbs 24:14 NIV).

Time will fail me to explain them in a detailed manner, one after the other. However, stay tuned for part 3 for more of wisdom benefits. Shalom!
