There’s nothing wrong with knowledge. We all need knowledge. But knowledge is learned; wisdom is given. Knowledge comes by looking around; wisdom comes by looking up. Knowledge comes from study; wisdom comes from meditation.
Wisdom is the way to apply your knowledge. You see, a man can have knowledge, but he needs understanding—he needs wisdom.
Did you know you could get knowledge apart from the Holy Spirit? But you cannot get true wisdom apart from Him. Colossians 2:3 says, “In [Jesus Christ] are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” Jesus is the secret of the universe. Jesus is the glue of the galaxies. Jesus is the secret of it all.
The only way a man can know is not by books, but by knowing the Lord Jesus Christ. There are some things you cannot learn from experience.
Daniel said, “Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are His. And He changeth the times and the seasons: He removeth kings, and setteth up kings: He giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: He revealeth the deep and secret things: He knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with Him. I thank Thee, and praise Thee, O Thou God of my fathers, who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of Thee: for Thou hast now made known unto us the king's matter” (Daniel 2:20-23).
