“Acquire wisdom! Acquire understanding!

Do not forget nor turn away from the words of my mouth.”

Proverbs 4:5 NASB

To acquire wisdom is to make up your mind that you

want it and will strive to get it.

Some of the benefits of wisdom are:

  1. With wisdom will come understanding meaning sound judgment.                      “The beginning of wisdom is: acquire wisdom and                                               with all your acquiring, get understanding.”  Proverbs 4:7 NASB

2.   With wisdom comes protection guarding you so as to

help you from being sucked into wrong dealings.

“Do not forsake her, and she will guard you;

Love her, and she will watch over you.”

Proverbs 4:6 NASB

3.   With wisdom comes life.

“Take hold of instruction; do not let go.

Guard her, for she is your life.”

Proverbs 4:13 NASB

4.   With wisdom comes good health.

“For they are life to those who find them

And health to all their body.”

Proverbs 4:22b NASB

5.   With wisdom comes peace.

“For length of days and years of life

And peace they will add to you.”

Proverbs 3:2 NASB
