I love this post and this answer. As many of you know, I’m doing a Wisdom Challenge this year, reading a Proverb every day, so that I will have read the Proverbs 12 times by the end of the year. (Each month I am using a different version of the Bible.) This post, and answer combines the Old and New Testaments and sums this up for us perfectly. Great insight.
Last post I asked you to solve the equation: Proverbs 4:7 + 1 Corinthians 1:24 = X
We had some great responses to this equation in the comments section. In this post I’ll share my own solution.
Bible Verse Equation Answer
Proverbs 4:7 says, “Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.” (NIV) And the same verse in the King James version says, “Wisdom is the principal thing.”
1 Corinthians 1:24 says that Jesus Christ is the wisdom of God.
So from those scriptures I come to this solution: Proverbs 4:7 + 1 Corinthians 1:24 =
Jesus Christ is the principal thing. Get Jesus. Though it cost all you have, get Jesus.
