Dear Abby (and Grant),

If I could bestow on you anything I desired for you in this lifetime, it would be something that the Bible says is "more precious than rubies." It is something that brings "riches and honor" to your life and who doesn't want that for their grandchildren? It is the gift that keeps on giving because it also brings "pleasantness and peace," "happiness," "safety," "sweet sleep," the knowledge of God," "length of days," "preservation," "promotion," "understanding," "life and health," and so much more!

Of course I am talking about "wisdom." All of these "jewels" come straight from the book of Proverbs. In Proverbs 2:6 we find that "the Lord giveth wisdom: out of His mouth cometh knowledge and understanding." God has given us His Word to guide us in the way of wisdom. We must choose for ourselves to go after it. As much as I want it for you, you have to choose it for yourself.

There are also dire consequences that come to those who refuse instruction and act out of their own understanding. Those people fall in line with ungodly people and their lives are needlessly turned upside down along with those who love them deeply. You can also read about them in Proverbs.

You must make the choice to follow after wisdom. If you will listen to the counsel of the parents God has so graciously given you, and go to His Word to give you wisdom, you will have nothing to lose and great treasures awaiting you! So many people love you and desire this for your lives. May the Lord watch between you and me when we are absent one from the other.
