WORD OF THE DAY ** WISDOM

Wisdom

Dictionary:

the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgment; the quality of being wise.

What makes a wise man?

They Are Trustworthy and Steadfast. A wise person treats others as they want to be treated, because they know it will help them, not hurt them.

The wise person is who we always go to when we need solid advice. Wise people are who we turn to and who we trust in times of need.

Wisdom isn’t simply intelligence or knowledge or even understanding. It is the ability to use these to think and act in such a way that common sense prevails and choices are beneficial and productive.

Experience might be one of the most valuable tools in acquiring wisdom. That is to say, what we learn from experience gives us the wisdom whether to try a particular thing or make a certain choice or not.

You can hear lectures on swimming, you can read books on swimming, and you can understand the buoyancy of water from observation but until you jump in the water and get some experience, you won’t have true wisdom about the water and that may make all the difference between swimming and drowning.

Experience is often the best teacher.

The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.   Proverbs 15:33
