Bonus Reading, Job

Where Is Wisdom Found?  

Today's reading is a brief meditation on the search for wisdom in the middle of Job's longer meditation about the nature of human suffering.  Where is wisdom to be found?  One cannot merely go to a specific spot on earth and find it.  No amount of money can buy it.  Only God, the one who created the universe, is the source of wisdom.  Wisdom can only be found through fear of the Lord and attention to God's teaching.

Read Job 28:12-28  (NIV)   (NRSV)   (CEB)
