Scripture Lesson: Job 28:12-28 

On this date in 2008 the New York Yankees announce prices for some of the seats at their new stadium for the exhibition game against the Chicago Cubs on April 3 and 4 will match the prices for the opening of the original Yankee Stadium in 1923. Bleacher seats can be purchased for 25 cents and grandstand seats will be sold for $1.10. 

Job is talking to his friends and trying to let them know the price of wisdom. Wisdom is more important than any fine jewel. Even the finest of gold cannot purchase or compare to wisdom. In verse 28 Job lets us know that putting God in His proper place by having the Holy Awe of God is wisdom. Nothing can be in place in our lives when God is out of his proper place. We can’t buy wisdom, there is no price that can be paid. Wisdom will come to us when we have God in His right place as most important in our lives.

1.      What does it cost you to place God first in your life?
2.      Is that a price you are willing to pay? Why or why not?
3.      Why does God deserve first place in our lives?

There is no price we can pay to buy God and His wisdom. All we must do is to commit to live for Him daily and give Him first place in our lives!
