The benefits of Wisdom

Proverbs 2:1-10

My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart,

2 for they will prolong your life many years and bring you prosperity.

3 Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck,write them on the tablet of your heart.

4 Then you will win favour and a good name in the sight of God and man.

5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;

6 in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

7 Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil.

8 This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.

9 Honour the LORD with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops;

10 then your barns will be filled to overflowing,
and your vats will brim over with new wine.
