from the book of wisdom

12 Wisdom is glorious, and never fades away: she is easily seen of them that love her, and found of such as seek her.
13 She prevents them that desire her, in making herself first known unto them.
14 Whoso seeketh her early shall have no great travail: for he shall find her sitting at his doors.
15 To think therefore upon her is perfection of wisdom: and whoso watcheth for her shall quickly be without care.
16 For she goeth about seeking such as are worthy of her, showing herself favourably unto them in the ways, and meeting them in every thought.
17 For the very true beginning of her is the desire of discipline; and the care of discipline is love;
18 And love is the keeping of her laws; and the giving heed unto her laws is the assurance of incorruption;
19 And incorruption makes us near unto God:
20 Therefore the desire of wisdom brings the seeker to the kingdom [of God AlMighty].

Those who seek to know their Creator will come to learn by seeking wisdom. However, the seeker will not be able to embody wisdom without discipline. The seeker must then embody love in a disciplined manner. To truly embody love is to submit to the law of God. This certainly requires a great amount of discipline and wisdom.  Inward purification is therefore necessary in order to attain nearness to God. The book of wisdom provides us great insight and understanding..
