“For wisdom is a defense as money is a defense, But the excellence of knowledge is that wisdom gives life to those who have it.
The Oxford Dictionary defines knowledge as facts, information, and skills acquired by a person through experience or education; the theoretical or practical understanding of a subject
Definition of wisdom: 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; the body of knowledge and principles that develops within a specified society or period:
Have you ever met people who exhibited a broad knowledge base, but just didn’t do well with people skills? What about that person who “knows it all?” Kinda tough to work with, aren’t they?
Ever wonder why that is? The Bible gives us a clue and here it is: Proverbs 4:7 “Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding.”
Some have not learned how to convey their knowledge with wisdom so others will be able to receive what is being said. I knew a person once who was very knowledgeable about the inner working of musical instruments.
He could repair about any problem a person would have with an instrument, especially if it had electronics involved with it.
The problem was this: If you asked him a simple question, he would always go into a litany of how the thing worked and sometimes it could become a rather lengthy explanation. He was very good at what he did, but I often, didn’t have the time to take the crash course in the repair of the instrument, so I would just hand the instrument to him and say, “Fix it because here’s what it is or is not doing,” and asked when I should check back with him.
