In this text, the writer, King Solomon, presents wisdom and understanding as a wisdom.
Lady wisdom is offering life and favor to those who seek her.
Wisdom not only leads to abundant life and life everlasting, but in doing so, we obtain favor.
Scripture declares in Proverbs 4:17-Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
Wisdom is being offer, but the question remains on how to find it. It can't be found in the glory and pleasure of things of this world.
Wisdom of God that causes mankind to obtain favor is only found in God, in His Word and the counsel of the godly.

Yes, wisdom much be searched out for it because it will not come to you, therefore, you must seek this valuable treasure called wisdom in order to find it.

Today, wisdom cries and pleads to be found by you. Wisdom too is seeking our attention as we are daily pursuing it in hopes of imparting into us God’s understanding, knowledge, truth and righteousness.
