Wisdom Produces Happiness

Our happiness must depend upon the Word of God and we must not become attached to things that will take us away from it. Too many times we place our happiness in temporal things. Then, when they are taken away, our joy soon fades too. Just knowing about wisdom is not enough. Happiness cannot be produced by knowledge alone; it is always a result of wisdom. It can only come from the Word of God. It is an effect of God’s righteousness.

When we have wisdom, we have insight from above. “She (wisdom) is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her; and happy is every one that retaineth her” (Proverbs 3:18). All of us need to have a regular diet of wisdom, for it “is the principle thing; therefore get wisdom” (Proverbs 4:7a)

It is worth more than rubies (2) and gold (3). When you get wisdom, a promise of happiness comes with it. “A man’s wisdom maketh his face to shine, and the boldness of his face shall be changed” (Ecclesiastes 8:1b).
