(Proverbs 2:4 KJV) If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;
I don’t know if you pay any attention to the price of gold and “silver” (3701) but an ounce of gold costs a lot more than an ounce of silver. For example, at this moment gold is $1,200 an ounce and silver is $14.10. Silver is much more in the reach of the average citizen than gold. That is just economics. This verse reminds me that wisdom is within the reach of the average believer. Yes the Bible also refers to jewels and gold but it does not ignore the more reachable assets.
So? Don’t think that the truth of the Bible is just for people with a lot of fancy education. Often that stands in the way. Keep in mind that $2,000 worth of silver has the same value as $2,000 of gold.
