Proverbs 16: 1-10

It is helpful to remember the difference between wisdom and knowledge. You can have knowledge without wisdom. Knowledge is the collection of facts. wisdom is the right use of what we know for daily living.

Knowledge can tell one how financial systems work; wisdom manages a budget properly.

Proverbs is like a school of wisdom.When we come with open hearts and minds,receiving its teaching. If we do, it will show as justice,judgment and equity to flow from our lives.

God should be regarded with respect and reverence.

This proper attitude of the creature toward the Creator is the beginning of knowledge and wisdom. Wisdom cannot advance further until this starting point is established.

If true wisdom can be simply gained by human effort, then the fear of the Lord is not essential to obtaining wisdom. But if it comes from God’s revelation, then right relationship with Him is the key to wisdom.
