Get Wisdom

Today, I started reading a book I got a little while ago, and I wanted to post on it. The one thing that the Proverbs makes clear is that you need wisdom. Read Proverbs 4:7. Also, it can't be the 'world's wisdom' which is foolishness, to GOD. Read 1 Corinthians 3:19. Also, there is a difference between wisdom and knowledge. Knowledge is just knowing things. Wisdom is doing things. All true wisdom comes from God, and it's not anything of your doing that got you that wisdom. The author of the book says this, "Wisdom is the best choice with the best result in every situation.

Kole one of my favorite observations is something I heard someone say, (wish I could give credit but I don't remember who) "He is educated beyond his intelligence". One particular person I know comes to mind. He was raised Catholic, but shared with me, years ago, that he felt he was called to start a "new religion". I was so offended and not very wise that I could not argue reasonably and our friendship pretty much ended. Now he is struggling with his own mortality and I suspect his "new religion" is not the answer for him. Of course we know there are no "new religions", only the names change. Grandma

The book I'm reading is called ancient wisdom (Proverbs). I wouldn't recomend it yet, since I just started the book. But maybe I will later.

So if you are not saved you can't be wise?

Prov 4:7 says the world's wisdom is foolishness to God. And ALL wisdom is given by God. Unbelievers won't have true, meaningful wisdom (saving wisdom)
