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.





Welcome to Wise Health Wealth

Welcome to Wise Health Wealth. Here we share with you principles and qualities which we hope will help you to attain and grow in wisdom, health and prosperity.


I am a retired home builder who training and love is music. Classical music is my primary area of study and have degrees in classical vocal music. Though trained and educated in music I worked in the residential building business for thirty years. Through all this I still continued to exercise my musical talents through performance, teaching and study. I love to teach and through this site I hope to continue to do that.



I grew up in at best a lower middle class family. But the important things were there and were instilled in me at a young age. As children, we were taught to work and that work was a good thing, not a bad thing. Through this we were taught to be God-fearing and to honor our elders. Through this we were taught to do the best we could at any given task even if no one was looking. Through this we were learning wisdom through this experience.

Growing up we learned how to grow and eat healthy foods and to eat what we needed and not to overeat. We got plenty of exercise and activity through our work and play. Through this we were taught and exercised cleanliness.

Hearkening to the work ethic, I was always able to work, even in lean times because I was a worker. There were many types of work which I did and learned over the years. That is a good thing. However, I never had someone to show me a way to integrate wisdom into producing the best return in the production of health and wealth.

In this site I hope to give you the insight and opportunity for you to accomplish that.



In this site I hope to give you the insight and opportunity to accomplish that. We shall do it through blogs, interviews, studies and videos. Hopefully, through interaction among our readers we shall have fresh input to a wide range of information relating to our subjects.
As we increase in knowledge and understanding I hope that you will also increase in wisdom, health, and wealth.

I look forward to hearing testimonies which will bear this out.

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you in any way I can.

All the best,

Thomas Harvey
