The Value of Wisdom

Consider carefully the following passage from Proverbs.
Blessed is the man who finds wisdom,
the man who gains understanding,
for she is more profitable than silver
and yields better returns than gold.
She is more precious than rubies;
nothing you desire can compare with her.
Proverbs 3:13 - 15
Notice the way Solomon, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit conveys the worth of wisdom.  Please do not make the mistake that some have made in thinking that wisdom is solely a feminine trait.  Solomon was one of the wisest men in history.  In referring to wisdom as a female, he is drawing the readers' attention to the worth of a godly wife.  Later in this same Book, God instructs the human author to pen:
A wife of noble character who can find? 
She is worth far more than rubies.
Her husband has full confidence in her 
and lacks nothing of value.
Proverbs 31:10 - 11
Make no mistake about it... wisdom is worth it's weight in gold.  Ask Solomon... better yet:
Study what he wrote about the value of wisdom.
