Blessed Perspective

Blessed Perspective
February 8
Proverbs 8:10

Take my instruction and not silver, and knowledge rather than choicest gold

I’ve seen more fools bejeweled than I can ever count
stupid men iced with diamonds of exorbitant amount
it might mean something for others to see
but the presence of precious stones
has never impressed me
instruction and knowledge from ages of old
is worth more than the choicest silver and gold
the presence of a sharp intelligent mind
is better than any material you can find
post-modern pop culture understands not
that men are much more than the things they’ve bought
shallow mentalities reign on the screen
and much focus is given to what is seen
who’s wearing what and it cost how much?
commoners look on without a touch
the intelligent chuckles and rolls his eyes
for silver and gold are worthless if not wise
