The Search for Wisdom

Sirach 51:13-30

[Seat of Wisdom]

When I was still young, before I started out on my travels, I boldly prayed for Wisdom. I went to the Temple and asked for her, and I will look for her as long as I live. From my blossoming youth to my ripe old age she has been my delight. I have followed directly in her path ever since I was young. I received Wisdom as soon as I began listening for her, and I have been rewarded with great knowledge. I have always been a learner and am grateful to everyone who has been my teacher. I was determined to live wisely and was devoted to the cause of goodness. I have no regrets.

I fought for Wisdom and was strict in my conduct. When I prayed, I sadly confessed how far short of Wisdom I fell. But I was determined to have her, and I found her by keeping myself free from sin. I have grown in Wisdom since first I found her, and I will never be without her. Because I was driven by the desire to find her, I have been richly rewarded. The Lord gave me a gift for words, and I have used it in his praise.

Come to me, all you that need instruction, and learn in my school. Why do you admit that you are ignorant and do nothing about it? Here is what I say: It costs nothing to be wise. Put on the yoke, and be willing to learn. The opportunity is always near. See for yourselves! I have really not studied very hard, but I have found great contentment. No matter how much it costs you to get Wisdom, it will be well worth it. Be joyfully grateful for the Lord's mercy, and never be ashamed to praise him.Do your duty at the proper time, and the Lord, at the time he thinks proper, will give you your reward.

Thank you for surfin' in, come back again!
