So Why Does God Bless the Wise?

One day as I was observing how wisdom fares on this earth, I saw something that made me sit up and take notice. There was a small town with only a few people in it. A strong king came and mounted an attack, building trenches and attack posts around it. There was a poor but wise man in that town whose wisdom saved the town, but he was promptly forgotten. (He was only a poor man, after all.) All the same, I still say that wisdom is better than muscle, even though the wise poor man was treated with contempt and soon forgotten. The quiet words of the wise are more effective Than the ranting of a king of fools. Wisdom is better than warheads, but one hothead can ruin the good earth.
A man can break his back working hard all his life and wind up with nothing to retire on...Another man can speak a few words and flash a pretty smile and be a total worldly success for his whole life...and to paraphrase Tevye said in the movie Fiddler on the Roof "Nobody listens to the poor man, but if you're rich, they think you really know"
So why does God bless the wise? Could it be so that people will actually listen?
