The Pincipal Thing

Here at WiseHealthWealth we shall present how to find health and wealth no matter what your situation or financial status may be. It will take work and consistency, but it will pay off.

The Priority

In the greatest book ever put in print we find this: Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all your getting get understanding. Being the principal thing makes it the most important of the things that we need.

OK! Where, then, do we find wisdom? That same book says this: The fear of the Lord(God) is the beginning of wisdom. So I encourage all who seek to be wealthy to first of all begin by being wise. Wisdom brings so many wonderful things with it, but I shall not go into great depth at this time.

Therefore, in searching how to find health and wealth begin first with the most important thing, WISDOM.


Having established our priority, we can begin our quest for the next goal. Health. Health takes on even greater importance once we have set our priorities. With wisdom we now know how to apply knowledge.

There is a lot of knowledge available to us in this day of the internet. We are constantly inundated with information about a multitude of topics. And it is growing everyday by leaps and bounds. We must exercise great judgment in how we absorb information. So with learning about health and how to pursue or maintain it, it behooves one to use wisdom.

There are many avenues through which one can pursue a healthy life. Some do it through diet. Some do it through supplements and vitamins. Some do it through strenuous workouts or exercises. Some pursue it through medical intervention. Some even do it by the job they choose to do.

An example is myself. For thirty years I worked as a home builder. I was an on the job type of builder. I was told by one of my clients, who was a cardio-vascular doctor that I was working in an occupation that was one of the healthiest that one could do for good heart health.

So, there is not a one fits all method of maintaining good health. Wisdom will direct you to the one best for you.



I hope that you have not skipped the previous topics to skip to this one. Wealth is a good thing if you rule it. It can be a bad thing if it rules you. You may ask, “How can wealth rule me?”

Let me give you an example. About forty years ago I knew a man who was very successful in his business. He worked at it continually and was diligent in being a good business man. His work consumed every area of his life. His business was always on his mind even when he was relaxing. He finally came to a point in his life where his health was affected. He came down with a disease that affected his liver. The doctors told him that if he would take some time to rest and let his body recover he could probably live out a normal life span. He was forty-eight and was financially well off. He could have sold his business and lived a long and comfortable life. But, sad to say, he was consumed with making more money and decided not to follow the doctors recommendation. He died within two years.

Wealth is good. Money is a great tool. It is a tool that can bring about much good in a troubled world. The more you have, the more good you can do.

Let us close this subject with another thought from that great book. “How much better is it to get wisdom than gold, and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver.”



In approaching our acquisition of health and wealth, let us be balanced in the tools that we use to attain our goals in these areas. By using wisdom we can and will reach our goals in both arenas and not have losses in the important aspects of our life. If you have a family, make sure to spend time with them. Find time to relax and do something that is totally different from your normal routine. Make sure to spend time with people. If you cannot get along with people you probably will not succeed at anything.

Live life. Work is only one part of living. Life does not find its’ meaning in our health or our wealth. It finds its’ meaning in our relationships.


In the search of how to find health and wealth no greater information can be found than is found in this statement:

Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all your getting, get understanding.
