Treasures of Wisdom By Fabian Massa.

Treasure of Petra, Jordania.

1. Why the titleA. Treasure
If we look for the definition of "treasure" found the following:

A Treasure (Latin thesaurus and the Greek θησαυρός-thesaurus) is something of great value. As valuable thing is stored and protected. From here is that the building in which are stored the riches of a city or state is called Treasury.

A treasure can be public or secret, depending on their function. In ancient Greece, the buildings where they kept the offerings of the gods were shaped sanctuary. Also in all cultures is used to save the treasures in special places. In the pyramids of Egypt, the pharaohs were buried and with them great fortunes that the deceased would use in their "afterlife", but all these tombs were looted and wealth enjoyed in the "here" by thieves.

Also called cultural treasures of riches, the natural, nature reserves are indeed a treasure. There are archaeological treasures, literary treasures of shipwrecks cash.

There are also treasures of worship, as the Holy Grail and the Lost Ark of the Covenant. What is clear is that a treasure is something valuable that will make its owner rich.

B. Wisdom
You can say that Wisdom is the sum of knowledge applied intelligence is the ability to successfully fend knowledge. Wisdom is also acting with understanding to solve problems, avoid or prevent hazards, achieve certain goals, or advise others. It is the opposite of foolishness, stupidity and folly.
KJV Bible In 60 [1] are two hundred thirty-three [2] quotes that speak of Wisdom. The Word of God teaches that:

I. The value of wisdom: Wisdom is better than rubies. Not equal it, topaz of Ethiopia can not be valued with pure gold. (Job 28.18b -19).

II. God as the source of wisdom: With him is wisdom and power, his is the counsel and understanding. (Job 12:13)

III. Wisdom produces material wealth: With thy wisdom and with thine understanding has accumulated riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into your treasuries. With your great wisdom in your trade you have multiplied your riches ... (Ezekiel 28.04-5A)

IV. The wisdom to lead the home: With wisdom (man) a house is built, and by understanding it is established; science and rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant. (Proverbs 24.2-3)

V. God gives wisdom to anyone who is pleasing: For the man who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy: but to the sinner he gives the task of gathering and storing up wealth to give to one who pleases God. This also is vanity and vexation of spirit. (Ecclesiastes 2.26)

VI. The principle to be wise: The beginning of wisdom is the fear of the Lord. (Proverbs 1.7 A)

VII. God invites us to take from Him wisdom: Incline your ear and hear the words of the wise,And apply thine heart unto my knowledge. (Proverbs 22:17)

VIII. Wisdom gives man consciousness of social justice: The righteous the cause of the poor, but the wicked does not understand wisdom. (Proverbs 29.7)

IX. Men of God with wisdom are consulted by the authorities: in all matters of wisdom and understanding, that the king (Nebuchadnezzar) were consulted (Daniel and his friends), he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his kingdom. (Daniel 1:20)

X. The wise recognize God as the source of his wisdom Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever, for theirs is the power and wisdom. (Daniel 2:20)

For these reasons we conclude that wisdom is more important than all the riches, because the man who possesses it may be all right, both material and spiritual.

2. Where to find treasures of wisdom
God is the source of all wisdom. All the wisdom of God is enclosed in His Word. The Bible contains many treasures of wisdom. In a world that daily advances in the technology race while it sinks deeper into the madness of social injustice, violence, hunger, war, evil, vice, disease, ignorance, is necessary to seek the wisdom to keep our hearts and our family. In this blog I will share with you the treasures that I have found over the last twelve years of reading and studying the Bible.

[1] 60 VRV Bible: King James Version 1960. It is a Spanish translation of the Hebrew Bible made in 1569 by Queen Casidoro (Bible Bear) and revised in 1602 by Cipriano de Valera.[2] There are 233 citations in the Hebrew Bible or their translations. If we take the Greek version (LXX) or any of its translations (Catholic bibles) the number would be higher.
