Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path.
– Proverbs 2:9
Here is the second consequence of the pursuit of wisdom. These verses should disabuse us of any notion of shortcuts to wisdom. If we do seek and search, then God gives us wisdom and we come to understand integrity, justice, and fairness. Through wisdom we are able to discern these rightly. Path is a track and refers to way one’s going in life. Here it is understanding every good way.
