Gaining Wisdom

There is a distinction between wisdom and knowledge: Knowledge is the accumulation of facts and data through study, research, or experience (think: education). Wisdom is the application of knowledge to one’s life, discerning what is true, right, or lasting. It is possible, then, for someone to be filled with knowledge, yet lack wisdom. God’s Word gives us this insight: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding” (Proverbs 9:10). Godly wisdom ultimately comes from knowing Jesus, the One who has redeemed us and who embodies the very wisdom of God. How will you seek God’s wisdom this week—and how might that shape your life? Will you share God’s wisdom by introducing others to Jesus, the Holy One, who embodies all of God’s wisdom and love?

Scripture References: Proverbs 9:10, 1 Corinthians 1:18-31

From Series: "Lifehacks"

A “Lifehack” describes any advice, shortcut, tip or skill that will help you get things done more efficiently and effectively. Because it is God’s Word, the Bible is our guide to all things in faith and life. Above all, it shows us Jesus, our Savior, and all that He has done to make us God’s people. It also empowers us and guides us as we live for God and we make a difference in this world for the sake of Christ’s Kingdom. Our Summer Back-to-Basics theme of “Lifehacks: Biblical Tools to Amplify your Faith” from Scripture is inspired by topics in the NIV Lifehacks Bible.
