What does wisdom have to offer?

"Wisdom has better gifts to offer than perishable riches - blessings like prudence, knowledge, discretion, the fear of the Lord, humility, godly speech, wise counsel, understanding, guidance on life's paths, strength for the journey, and "durable riches."  A life that's enriched by God may be poor in this world's goods, but it is rich in the things that matter most.  It's good to enjoy the things that money can buy, provided you don't lose the things that money can't buy.  What wisdom has to offer can't be purchased anywhere, no matter how rich you are."  Warren Wiersbe, from 'Be Skillful' (a commentary on Proverbs)
