The dictionary has many definitions of wisdom; accumulation of knowledge, discernment of inner qualities or relationships, good sense, and a generally excepted belief to name a few. The Bible says a lot about wisdom also. I believe the wisest human ever to live was a King in Israel, Solomon. He wrote Proverbs (and other parts of the Bible) that were for his children and the world to help us understand the wisdom and the right way to live. Some of the things he wrote about are common sense, and some are very profound. Today, as I was reading Proverbs 8, Wisdom came alive. Wisdom cries out to us all and almost begs us to find it. Wisdom wants to help us to live abundantly, and to be rich in things other than silver and gold. Wisdom existed before the foundation of the world. It was there when all things were created. Wisdom is alive, the quote leads me to believe that wisdom is Jesus. He was, is, and will be forever, He is the beginning and the end.... He is Wisdom.

The Quote:
"For whoever finds me finds life,
And obtains favor from the Lord;
But he who sins against me wrongs his own soul;
All those who hate me love death.”  Proverbs 8:35-36
