Read Proverbs 5-8

Wisdom was there before God formed the dust.
To hate her, is to love death.

To love wisdom though is exhorted and is ultimately to love Jesus. Jesus is the wisest man to ever live. Could you conclude that all wisdom then would lead to Jesus? And to love him is to love life, eternal! Jesus says if we believe in him, we will not perish, but have eternal life John 3:16

Wisdom is better than gold.

GOLD. The sun does not shine so much in our eyes as gold; it is the mirror of beauty, “money answers all things,” Eccl. 10:19. But grace weighs heavier than gold; gold draws the heart from God, grace draws the heart to God. Gold does but enrich the mortal part, grace the angelic part. Gold perishes, 1 Pet. 1:7, grace perseveres. The rose, the fuller it is blown, the sooner it sheds—is an emblem of all things, besides grace. Thomas Watson

Jesus is more precious than gold.
