I’ve read hundreds of business and self-development books, and they were often helpful.
But when I backed up and rebuilt my personal foundation on the Biblical truth of the Proverbs, it super-charged everything I’d already learned. Finally, I had a context and framework for how to apply their lessons.
Once we’ve invested in building our wisdom account, we can add layers and layers of knowledge without worrying about an overdraft.
To “saving” today,
More Than Knowledge
Wisdom is infinitely different from mere knowledge. Knowledge is simply the acquiring of information. But acquiring information does not in itself create success, joy, or lasting fulfillment.
Understanding is learning how to distinguish between information that is true and practical, and information that is not. Understanding places great value on truth and its practical application.
Wisdom goes one step further. It takes those truths that have the greatest value and correctly applies them to situations, circumstances, or to life in general.
“Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers.”
– Alfred Tennyson
Today, I will make a deposit to my “wisdom” account.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
