I like to purchase items of the highest quality if possible. Thankfully there are organizations out there that do quality market research and customer analysis regarding various products. So I will often use “Google” or perhaps another search engine on my computer and type in the words, “ranked best [and then key in the kind of product I’m seeking to purchase]. For example: “Ranked best microwave,” or “ranked best smartphone,” or “ranked best tablet computer,” etc. Then based upon market research I’m able to make an informed purchase based upon what has been found to be the “best” – what has been shown to be of the highest quality.
During “coffee with the Lord” this morning I found a report, based upon Divine market research, regarding what is “ranked best” to pursue in life! Here’s what the “Proverbs report” says about that issue…
“Blessed [enviably happy and fulfilled] is the one who finds wisdom, and the one who gets understanding, for the gain from her is better than gain from silver and her profit better than gold! She is more precious than jewels! Nothing you desire can compare with her! Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her; those who hold her fast are called blessed.” (Proverbs 3:13–18 ESV)
Where can you get this “wisdom” and “understanding” … Well, the outlet – the source where it is always available is “The fear [or reverence] of the Lord!” (Proverbs 1:7; 9:10; 15:33)
In fact, there is even a worship song that even addresses this…
“Lord, You are more precious than silver;
Lord, You are more costly than gold;
Lord, You are more beautiful than diamonds;
And nothing I desire compares with You!”
I don’t know about you, but based on Divine research and revelation, that’s where I want to put my money, my efforts, and my life-pursuit!
