Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. (Proverbs 4:7)
My old NIV bible says the title of this chapter is ‘Wisdom is Supreme’. Now I’m wondering, why is wisdom supreme?
So this passage tells that we should get wisdom at all cost because it is the highest among the gifts that God can possibly give on earth.
But what is true wisdom that comes from God? The Bible has also made it clear what true wisdom is:
But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. (James 3:17)
Therefore, wisdom is supreme because it bears good fruit. It also brings good life to those who posses it.
