The Difference Between
Knowledge & Wisdom

“The Fear of the LORD is the Beginning of Knowledge”
Proverbs 9:10

wisdom+knowledge The word KNOWLEDGE is defined as the 'acquaintance with facts, truths or principles' It means to perceive or understand as fact or truth; to apprehend clearly and with certainty. Knowledge is typically gained through books, research, and delving into facts.

WISDOM is defined as 'the state of being wise,' which means 'having the power of discernment and judging properly as to what is true or right: possessing discernment, judgement, or discretion.' Wisdom is typically gained from experiences acquired over time.

So, we can see that knowledge and wisdom are two different things. In one sense, Knowledge resides in the MIND, but Wisdom resides in the HEART.

The wisdom book of Proverbs points us to the differences on achieving wisdom over knowledge in order to see life from God’s point of view and how to apply His wisdom in life. When you meditate on and listen to God’s Word; and obey it, there will always be a Positive Benefit. Proverbs 24:3 says, “Through wisdom lives are built, and by understanding it is established.”

My friend, if you want to be wise, trust in God and make a place for it in your heart. When you do, your path through life will always be well directed.
