Better Than

Today's reading: Ecclesiastes 9:11-18

As we close out Ecclesiastes 9, Solomon considers, yet again, the incredible importance and value of having wisdom, and how our lives are benefitted by possessing it. This time around, Solomon makes two "better than" statements about wisdom (wisdom is better than might and better than weapons of war) that contradict what the world would have us believe—that having power, wealth and education somehow equates with having wisdom. Not so says Solomon. Rather, godly wisdom is better than anything the world has to offer.

How often do you think about the fact that you’re gaining godly wisdom when you read and study God's Word? Do you ask God to give you wisdom before you read your Bible? What’s one way you can/will demonstrate wisdom today? How about the rest of this week? Tami
