Knowledge VS. Wisdom - Sunday, April 13th 2014

Proverbs 17:2

"A wise servant will rule over the master's disgraceful son and will share the inheritance of the master's children."
NLT

Wisdom is often misunderstood. Many people assume that wisdom is knowledge, but there are many people who have brains filled with knowledge but are still unwise. Solomon understood this truth and that's why we see wisdom often described in regards to action or lifestyle. After all, you can have all the book smarts in the world, but if the information you learn does not affect the way you live, then it is worthless.

When we spend time meditating on God's Word we will be equipped with biblical knowledge so that we can then live our lives with wisdom through the Holy Spirit. In life we are going to make mistakes and do some foolish things and yet through the grace of God we can get up, dust ourselves off and continue seeking Christ. Over time, we can look back and see a consistency in our life that stems from our increase in biblical wisdom. We won't be perfect, but we will be able to celebrate God's ability to bring us from point A to point B through the power of His Word and Spirit.

Life Lesson: A wise person is not considered wise because of a good moment, but because of the consistency in lifestyle choices.

Dear God,
Thank You for Your Word. Help me to not only grow in knowledge of Your Word but to live in wisdom by applying what I know to be true. Give me a heart for You and a love for others. In Jesus' name, Amen.

Living to tell what He died to say,
