Context: Wisdom should be as precious to God's children as money is to fools. Just as sinners keep their wealth close, so should we keep wisdom close. We should cling to it. It is our protection against the outside world who would have us abandon what is right because they cannot recognize what is wrong. Wisdom and following the Lord is not simply intellectually, knowing what you should and should not do. We are to commit wisdom to our heart. If we are not prepared to understand with our heart, then we will never grasp complete understanding. It is not easy! It takes work! We begin by studying God's Word.
