    Which of the two would you rather have? Abundant Wisdom or Abundant Wealth?

    without thinking, I'd go for abundant wisdom! learning from King Solomon, (who instead of asking for wealth, asked for wisdom), was blessed beyond measures because of his wisdom. And I desire God's wisdom in this lifetime more than wealth! Wealth is limited, but wisdom opens great and many opportunities for greatness, including wealth!

    To have abundant wealth is tempting; as you can use it to build an organization to help the needy. But without wisdom, it will all crumble. definitely, ABUNDANT WISDOM.

    Just to go against the crowd I'm going to say abundant wealth because I can invest and get income from my wealth, then I will hire people who have abundant wisdom to help me out when I have struggles. Wisdom, to me, is like the ability do make good choices. If I have God, AND a ton of money, who knows how much people I will be able to help/bring to Him.

    Abundant wisdom  = wealth. I know                                                    .

    My answer is relative to the current human condition. Everyone has the ability to be rich and/or wise. The only problem is we are too easily led so we get trapped and exploited by wiser and/or richer people.

    In theory, the only way to avoid exploitation is to acquire abundant wisdom. With abundant wisdom I might one day realize that money is not important. For instance, What does it mean when two of the richest men in the world say that they plan to give away most of their wealth?

    In reality, money is a way of life. The only wise way to avoid money is to go to the hills and live off nature. The choices break down to inclusion or exclusion and whether you want to make a deference in society or not.

    I would take abundant wisdom because the wisdom would improve all aspects of my life.  Additionally, I would have wisdom when it came to money and be better able to manage what I have.

    A fool and his money are quickly separated.  It is better to be wise.

    Abundant wisdom will bring abundant wealth but it will be great to inherit abundant wealth then use my abundant wisdom to invest it properly.

    Wisdom.  With wisdom you have a good chance at aquiring abundant wealth, or at least enough to live off of.

    Out of abundant of wisdom wealth comes, but wealth can never be trade for abundant of wisdom. so i need abundant of wisdom more than anything in the world.

    wisdom...it creates wealth in more than monetary ways

    I'm with chasemillis on this one kinda'.Hmmmmmmmm, but when you say wealth I hope you  mean monetary wealth, like winning the lottery big time. hmmmmmmmmmm But, then abundant  wisdom would mean I would not be in this dilemma of choosing too! Very good question that would make a great poll in a hub. hmmmmmmmm re-reading Cellebrate's answer and my dilemma of still thinking it over, remembering the "grasshopper" in Kung-fu I'm gon'na go for wisdom, since I already have great wealth - friends.

    Personally I will go for wisdom.

    Wisdom can help us to create wealth and harmony in family. Having wisdom is the best of both worlds in my opinion.

    Wisdom of course. Wisdom = happiness, but money =... well, money. And someone without any wisdom would likely piss it all away anyhow!

    Abundant wisdom, definitely.  With abundant wisdom, you can create wealth or understand fully that you don't need it to be happy.. Win-win.

    Wisdom for sure.
    Wait, I might actually take the wealth because wisdom doesn't actually mean knowledge. I can be intelligent and knowledgeable and still rich. Just not particularly wise. So long as I have knowledge and can stay as far away from ignorance, foolishness and stupidity as I can, I can live without the wisdom.

    Wisdom is one of the few things that you can't buy with money. Unless you inherit money, you most likely used wisdom to get wealth.

    Definitely abundant wisdom.  For wealth helps us live a lifestyle we would hope and wish for but without wisdom, we wouldn't know how to live with deep understanding of life and what it is about.

    Really all answers to this became moot after Hyphenbird answered. Abundant wisdom properly applied can create abundant wealth, yet the reverse does not hold true.

    Abundant Wisdom, because abundant wisdom is abundant wealth.
