Solomon asked for wisdom and God gave him.Using that wisdom,he wrote down a very important relationship between wisdom and long life:

“She(wisdom) offers you long life in her right hand-Prov 3:16a(NLT)

Contrary to the belief of many that think long life confers wisdom,Solomon says it is wisdom that offers long life!

Just think about it…

“Those who build their lives on a foundation of wisdom actually live longer”-Stephen K.Scott

So when next you see an aged person,it is not his age that makes him wise,rather it is the wisdom he acquires that lengthens his life.When he speaks,that wisdom drops like honey from his mouth.

Truly,wisdom is the principal thing, therefore get wisdom.
