If you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures,
then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.
For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding;
About This Image:
I actually remember sitting in desks like these in the Cataloochee School in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in my first years of school. For the children of the mountains, as with many children around the world today, going to school wasn't guaranteed. People who really wanted an education for themselves and their children had to work at it. So too it is for those who want to become wise; they must seek after it. As this verse tells us, though, true wisdom is also a gift from God. Seek God, stand in awe of God, and then you will find the gift of true wisdom which comes only from him.
