Proverbs 8:11 (NKJV) — 11 For wisdom is better than rubies, And all the things one may desire cannot be compared with her.
Nothing is as valuable as wisdom. What do people of the world desire? Wealth, fame, long life, happiness. But wisdom is more desirable than them all. Wisdom so far outdistances all the other things people pursue that there is no comparison. Sadly, most people spend their entire lives pursuing less desirable things.
