Feed conversion ratio is an important metric when comparing livestock. The animal with the best feed conversion ratio is that animal which grows fastest and is most profitable with equal amounts of feed.
As humans, ours is not a race to grow, but a race to learn — to learn as much as possible in limited time. Solomon had a good wisdom conversion ratio. Looking at ants, he learned a lesson for the lazy. Passing a neglected field, he found inspiration for the book of Proverbs. Each of us encounter countless scenes of industry, of ruin, of wisdom. From which do we learn — of which are we ignorant?
Oh Lord, please give us a good wisdom conversion ratio, deriving valuable lessons from the scenes of life!
