What’s better than wealth?

Here are three things:

Wisdom:

Happy is a man who finds wisdom

and who acquires understanding,

for she is more profitable than silver,

and her revenue is better than gold.

She is more precious than jewels;

nothing you desire compares with her.

(Proverbs 3:13-15, HCSB).

A wife of noble character:

A wife of noble character who can find?

She is worth far more than rubies.
(Proverbs 31:10, NET).

Suffering for Christ:

By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter. He chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. He regarded disgrace for the sake of Christ as of greater value than the treasures of Egypt, because he was looking ahead to his reward.
(Hebrews 11:24-26, NIV 2011).
