It is foolish of us to think we can attain true wisdom without the knowledge of God. It is even more foolish to think we can attain knowledge outside of God’s influence in our lives. Proverbs 2:6 says, For the Lord gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. Without knowledge and understanding we cannot have God’s wisdom. It is through our knowledge, understanding, and relationship with God that we have true wisdom and can apply it in our lives, and in the lives of others.
