Today I would like to share with you one of my all-time favorite scriptures:
“The wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.” James 3:17 (KJV)
Knowledge is different than wisdom. Knowledge can be highly valuable, and often is. As a life-long seeker of knowledge, I have great appreciation and love of it. Wisdom is something different altogether.
The dictionary defines knowledge as “information, and skills acquired by a person through experience or education; the theoretical or practical understanding of a subject.”
The dictionary defines wisdom as “the quality of having experience, knowledge and good judgment; the quality of being wise, the soundness of an action or decision with regard to the application of experience, knowledge and good judgment.”
They aren’t against each other—knowledge and wisdom.
I want to be a seeker of wisdom as much as I am of knowledge.
Wishing you a wisdom-filled, joyous day and week,
