Knowledge and wisdom. They are not the same.
Knowledge deals with information. Wisdom deals with judgment.
So…a person can be well-informed…but lack the ability to make good judgments.
King Solomon was known for his wisdom – unexcelled in his day. But…in later life he became an idolater. He turned away from God’s wisdom.
King David was a brilliant administrator. But…his moral failure…and his dysfunctional family are evidence of a lack of wisdom.
So today…strive to be both well-informed and wise – with wisdom that comes through God’s Word.
Remember…you can have all of the facts…in right order — but that does not equal wisdom.
Both knowledgeable and wise – that’s the goal.
