Some things are important enough to grab hold of and enjoy before letting go.
Other things are of such importance and value that, once they are acquired, they should not be let go.
Wisdom is in that latter category:
“She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her” (18).
Like a mature, healthy, fruitful tree, wisdom gives and gives and gives to those who find her and possess her.
Those who have wisdom are blessed (“happy,” said the KJV translators).
I believe that.
Then what will I do today to pursue and possess wisdom?
