Read Proverbs 8:10-11 (https://bit.ly/3fplFQl)

Back in Bible times wealth was held in precious metals and jewels, rather than in the bank or in assets such as houses or cars. If someone had silver, gold or rubies they were considered to be rich.

In these verses we are told that it is better to choose God’s instruction and knowledge over silver or gold and it also tells us that wisdom is more valuable that rubies. These are things that money can’t buy and they are also things that are not easily lost, like a cellphone or a wallet of cash.
