Proverbs 4:6-7 tells us that attaining wisdom is the principal (main, key, predominant) thing. It should be of high importance in our lives, not something we hope we end up with in our latter years.
Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
Chapter 8 of Proverbs deals with wisdom. Verse 17 makes it clear that we are to seek after wisdom and that we are to do so early in our lives.
I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.
There are 53 references for “wisdom” and 66 for “wise” in the book of Proverbs alone. It is an excellent place to begin our search for wisdom.
