Long Life, Honor, and Riches - Attainable or Not?

I want, and want you as well, to live long, be honored, and be rich!

How? Seek skillful and godly Wisdom before anything else in Life! What I'm getting at is we will try every diet, exercise regiment, and pill on earth to be healthy and to EXTEND our LIVES. However, when they don't work out how we imagined we feel like miserable failures, yet we won't try "one" thing. 

Everyone wants HONOR or praise from our peers. Men and women will even "sleep" their way into high positions of life or backstab a friend or family member to gain recognition from someone. Sometimes we choose ultimate lows to attain ultimate highs. To be RICH we will try every pyramid scheme, every popular stock or fund (which can crash at a moment's notice), or we'll even lie, cheat, and steal yet we won't try "one" thing.

Here's an easier way. Go to your grandma's house or look on your own bookshelf and pick up the dustiest book you can find. Blow on it. After you sneeze and rub dust particles out of your eyes you'll have discovered that what you hold is a bible. Yep, and there are actually some encouraging golden nuggets in there. Go to and read Proverbs 3:13,15-16. It says:13) Happy is the man who finds skillful and godly Wisdom and the man who gets understanding from God's WORD and life's experiences. 15) Skillful and godly Wisdom is more precious than rubies; and nothing you can wish for is to be compared to her. 16)Length of days are in her right hand and in her left hand are riches and honor.

I love those scriptures! Notice, that we can get this 'Wisdom' from God's word, lifes experiences, and through Christ because in Him hide all treasures of wisdom and Knowledge (I Cor1:24;Col.2:3).

So seek HIM first and I promise you cool, interesting, and enlightening experiences will unfold.
