To be healthy by far. Without your health you have nothing. It is no good to be wealthy or wise from the grave. Both are useless without good health.
I agree, it's better to have your health. I took my health for granted, then had a heart attack last year at the age of 41! I was realizing my dream of becoming a hotelier and had more money than I ever had before, however, I paid the price for trying to be wealthy. I am now broke and trying to get back to full health...but I am definately wiser than before!
Without health, there is no use being wealthy and wise, so health is the most important aspect of one's life with which you can always work your way up to accumulate wealth and gain wisdom.
One's health is best to have for sure. However, if you are wise, you may be more prone to be healthy and wealthy, but not really. As wise people become ill too.
I'd say being wise. If you aren't wise, then how can you create a healthy lifestyle for yourself or better your financial situation?
You can be wealthy, but blow all of your money on frivolous things because you aren't wise.
You can be healthy, but not exercise, not eat a proper diet, and smoke cigarettes, causing your health to decline because you aren't wise. This doesn't include illnesses that are out of your control, but there is a lot that can be prevented with proper care of your health.
I don't have my health fully (autoimmune disease), or wealth, but I am wise--which helps me improve the other two things. Better decisions are made when you are wise.
Being wealthy lends itself to better health and education and there are even research studies that prove so. Without money, one cannot pay for the things that lead to better health (whether it be food, a clean & safe home, health care, etc.) and the opportunity for better or advanced education which would lead you to be wise. I choose to be wealthy.
Healthy. As someone who is surprised at how 60 feels, I would definitely take health. As JThomp42 wrote, without it we have nothing. The other two choices, Wealth and Wisdom can be earned and learned - but health is often outside of our control.
I believe that in wisdom one will see the importance of healthiness in the body, and the lack of importance wealth holds. So I truly believe wisdom is the best.
Healthy, definitely. It's no good being anything at all if you're so ill you can't enjoy it. Plus, if you have your health you can spend your time reading books and experiencing new things, in effect gathering knowledge and wisdom. Once you've collected all that experience, you can probably use it to make some money... but you've got to be healthy to begin with!
Wise, then healthy, and wealthy last. A wise man will be all three because he knows how to care for himself and be wise to make good decisions to be wealthy.
A disease such as cancer can strike anyone? No matter how healthy that you have tried to live. Just sayin. Not disagreeing with you.
I tried to look after my health but had a heart attack...fit young people have cardiac arrests..for example Fabrice Muamba - a 23 year old English premier league footballer - who was probably paid thousands per week collapsed
I was 41 , running a 10 bedroom hotel, loving life then bangggg... heart attack....I was making great money but I am affraid it ccouldn't buy me an undamaged heart. I am wiser now, as I wouldn't stress so much or take that Vodka as much.
I said a wise man would know how to care for himself. Regular check ups so he would catch cancer in the early stage and be perfectly fine after some appointments and therapy. It's easy to see why you had a heart attack and I'm glad your fine.
I'm sorry lburmaster. You are being so naive when it comes to cancer. I've seen people find out and be dead days later and had no idea they could possibly have cancer?
I would always choose Health.
Health can be a matter of genetics, living conditions, exposure to other people that you cannot always control.
With Good Health you can acquire wisdom and with wisdom, you can acquire wealth.
Therefore, the one thing you cannot fully control is your health. You can eat right, exercise and all the other things you are suppose to do, but there are some aspects to health that are beyond your control
Thus Health is the best of the three choices, and for the record they are followed by wisdom and wealth. The acquisition of material items ranks low on the list.
My grandfather had many great sayings and one of them was:
"If you have your health, you have everything".
He stated this to me when he was paralyzed from a stroke.
He essentially died from diabetes and sadly before he died he had both legs amputated in an attempt to fight the ravaged disease of diabetes.
Diabetes is not just a killer but it also severely affects our moods.
If you're healthy but foolish you're dead.
If you're wealthy but weak you're broken.
If you're wise with no wealth you're stagnant.
It's a riddle of resources. Do you want resources of the body, the material, or the mind. If you have only one then all you are is out of luck.
Yes. I do agreed that health is the better choice.
Money and wisdom can be earned or learned but health is most important. Without having a good health, with all that wealth will be useless as doctors may not able to heal you.
Health comes first!
I think if your wise, then the healthy and wealthy would follow. But if for some reason having a lot of wisdom did not lead to good health or wealth, I would then say "healthy".
To be healthy is definitely the top of the list. Wisdom and wealth will be of little value if you are barely clinging to life. Not to say that wisdom is not important because a wise person will find a way to cope with a body that is not tip top.
Being in poor health may not be because you were unwise. You may have been born with a malady that you had no control over getting.
I would give more importance to health because however wealthy or wise you are, an unhealthy body will not be able to enjoy anything. Only a healthy person can be wise and wealthy.
I'll choose health over wealth anytime. Without health nothing matters. You can’t enjoy your wealth if you’re not well nor can you make wise decision.

What is Jesus' view on being wealthy?In today's world, money seems to rule everything and very many preachers focus their teachings on prosperity in life , with a lot of reference to money. This all has me confused

If you are guaranteed life until 90 would you rather be healthy or wealthy?Most people in the western world are living longer and longer but the quality of their life may be impacted by their failing health or lack of financial resources to afford adequate housing and care..

It seems that unless you are upper middle class or wealthy you can't afford proper health care. It just doesn't seem fair. I am happy so far that I have been healthy, but just a simple cold or flu to get penecilin you have to pay a Dr. almost $200.00 just to get a prescription. I am very thankful...
