36 Tips That Add Years To Your Life

Wisdom the principal thing

Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Proverbs 4:7.

Wisdom is more precious than rubies; and nothing you can wish for is to be compared to her.Length of days is in her right hand, and in her left hand are riches and honor. Proverbs 3:15-16.


Many problems today can be avoided with just gaining the wisdom needed for the problem. For example health problems that may have occurred through negligence or a lack of understanding can possibly be turned around with understanding of what not to do. Marriage problems could be the result of a wisdom problem while financial problems could be the result of a wisdom problem relating to money. Wisdom is the accurate arrangement of applied knowledge. The human body is an incredible machine that when health strategies are applied can increase longevity.
