    Getting wisdom is the most important thing you can do!
    And with your wisdom, develop common sense and good judgment
    Proverbs 4:7

    Knowledge: Aware what is right (raw facts)
    Wisdom: Doing what is right (applying the knowledge of what is right to a given situation)
    Understanding: Comprehending why something is right (looking back after exercising wisdom).
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    As i ponder this, Job comes to mind. God Himself testifies to Job's wisdom, several times, right there in the book of Job. This is what wisdom is:

    it's the "fear of the Lord".

    Proverbs 9:10 tells us that the very "beginning" of wisdom is the "fear of the Lord". And there is no fear of thd Lord without first humbling ourselves before Him.

    To humble ourselves before the Lord, and thus to "fear" Him, simply means that we take Him seriously, and thus "believe" Him, just as Abraham did, which is why Abraham "obeyed" Him, and because Abraham "believed" Him is why God Himself called Abraham His "friend".

    "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom..." -Proverbs 9:10

    God bless you on this cold but sunny Sunday morning in October, Bob. You are a blessing. :)
