There is a mine for silver and a place where gold is refined. Iron is taken from the earth, and copper is smelted from ore. Mortals put an end to the darkness; they search out the farthest recesses for ore in the blackest darkness.
Far from human dwellings they cut a shaft, in places untouched by human feet; far from other people they dangle and sway. They tunnel through the rock; their eyes see all its treasures. They search the sources of the rivers and bring hidden things to light.
But where can wisdom be found? Where does understanding dwell? No mortal comprehends its worth; it cannot be found in the land of the living. Job 28:1-4, 10-13
For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. Proverbs 2:6
The fear of the Lord (reverence for God) is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise. Psalm 111:10
For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul. Proverbs 2:10
Blessed (happy) are those who find wisdom, those who gain 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
For those who find me (wisdom) find life (eternal life) and receive favor from the Lord. Proverbs 8:35
He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8
Nuggets of Wisdom … spread the Word
My name is Mark Horowitz. Throughout my childhood and adolescence, I believed there was a God, but never understood or knew Him. Being raised in a non-religious Jewish home, I lived my life without ever recognizing I was a sinner and that the forgiveness and love of God was something needed and available to me. I always thought I was a “good person” and that would be good enough to get into Heaven, especially being Jewish. After I got married, my wife Sharel started reading the Bible. She was so excited about what she was learning. Every day she tried relentlessly to get me to read the Word with her. I wanted to have nothing to do with it. I was hostile to anything that had to do with Jesus Christ. After hearing her say, "why don’t I believe that Jesus Christ is the Messiah?" I asked myself that very question. Was it because of my Jewish upbringing? I wondered if there is more to this than what I perceived. I started reading the Bible on my own personal journey of truth finding prophecies of the Messiah in the Old Testament, then reading their fulfillment in the New Testament. More and more God revealed his truth to me. In 1992, at the age of thirty seven, I asked Jesus into my heart as my Lord and Savior. By his grace I am able to share his word with others. The Lord has given me a ministry to spread the Word of God through the Internet using “Biblestuph.com” I started putting selected scriptures together every week with a theme so that believers and nonbelievers could grow in the knowledge of God. I know that the Word of God is vital for salvation and spiritual growth.
