Wisdom is not knowledge and it is not something we are born with either. Wisdom comes from experiences we learn directly and from observing others. The key is to learn and apply wisdom to make better choices. Proverbs 9:12 says, If you are wise, your wisdom will reward you; if you are a mocker, you alone will suffer. We have the ability in life to gain wisdom or to choose something else. God gives us the ability to gain wisdom through experiences and through the Holy Spirit in us. We just have to apply it.
