Wisdom Comes From God Alone
Wisdom is a topic that appears throughout the Bible multiple times. A complete book (Proverbs) appears to be devoted to the subject, and many verses in Proverbs deal with wisdom (often contrasted with foolishness). Wisdom appears to be difficult to come by. Wisdom, in general, seems to draw our attention to someone who has a lot of experience or competence in a certain field, or someone who makes wise decisions. Having information is not the same as having wisdom. The term “knowledge” refers to the acquisition of information through experience, reasoning, or acquaintance. Wisdom, on the other hand, is the ability to detect or determine what is correct. Take a look at these ‘wisdom comes from God’ quotes.
