Wisdom

The book of Proverbs is full of wisdom about God and the world. King Solomon wrote this Old Testament book.
When I was in high school, I remember thinking, “What is the difference between wisdom and knowledge? Are they the same thing?” Then someone told me that knowledge is knowing things like history facts or how electricity works. But wisdom is knowing how to use that knowledge in your life.
Being wise is a wonderful thing. But having wisdom about spiritual things is even more important. We can read the Bible and learn about people in the Bible and what they did. But it is better to know how to use that knowledge to help us grow closer to God. That is true wisdom!
Proverbs 1:2a says, “These words are written so that people can be wise and know the right things to do.” I hope today you will study God’s Word and become wise. Then you will do the right things and please God.
