When the word wisdom is separated, you get the true meaning of the word, which categorizes people as wise or dumb. Where you fall or choose to fall is entirely up to the individual. Can you get wisdom from a university? Does a persons degree measure or display how wise they are? Do your decisions or choices in life display your wisdom? People who the world look up to as wise, like doctors, lawyers, and presidents all make mistakes that is detrimental to others and themselves.
The dictionary says, wisdom is knowledge of what is true or right coupled with good judgment. The Bible says in Jeremiah 8:9 that when you reject God’s word you also reject Godly wisdom. Is this the reason why so many people fall under the dumb (dom) instead of the wise (wis) in wisdom; because they reject Godly wisdom? Remember folks, 1 Corinthians 3:19 says, “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God, for it is written, ‘He catches the wise in their own craftiness,’ and again,’The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise that they are futile.”‘
Solomon one of the wisest men ever, tells us in Proverbs 1:7 that, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instructions.” How many have us has fallen into the foolish or dumb category, because we weren’t wise enough to trust God with all our heart, and lean not to our own understanding, but just acknowledge Him (God) in all our ways so that He (God) can direct our paths (Proverbs 3:5-6). As a matter of fact the whole book of Proverbs speaks about wisdom as it pertains to life.
Lets backup to Proverbs 1:2-5 which tells us, “To know wisdom and instruction, to perceive the words of understanding, to receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, judgment, and equity; to give prudence to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion; a wise man will hear and increase learning, and a man of understanding will attain wise counsel.” Do you want to be wise and not dumb? Only fools despise wisdom, which category do you fall under?
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind… (James 1: 5-8). I have seen presidents, people with masters degree, even Ph.D’s mess up, because they don’t have the wisdom from above which is pure (James 3:17).
