Job Counsels Wisdom is More Valuable than Money

Today I read Job 28 where Job talks about the value of wisdom.  It reminded me of several scriptures and quotes.  The first scripture that came to mind is from the Doctrine and Covenants, section 130 where God tells Joseph Smith that knowledge is the only thing that we take with us into the next life and that any person who gains more knowledge in this life will be farther ahead in the life to come.  I'm also reminded of the Lord's counsel to seek out the best books and learning.  Clearly accumulating the right kind of knowledge is important to our Heavenly Father.  And if it is important to Him, it should be important to us.  We would be wise indeed if we spent our time learning the important things of the world instead of wasting our time.  Until tomorrow.
