In this blog I am sharing some quotes and Bible verses on the word “wisdom”.
Quote: Patience is a companion of wisdom. ~ St. Augustine
Bible Verse: 2 Chron.9:And all the kings of the earth sought the presence of Solomon, to hear his wisdom, that God had put in his heart.
This verse tells us that wisdom worth seeking is the wisdom given by God through His creation and His word.
Quote: The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom. ~ Isaac Asimov
The Bible states in James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. And in Psalm 111:10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever. Then in Proverbs 2:6,7 we read: For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
7 He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.
We read in Proverbs 3:13 Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. [ God is the provider of wisdom and understanding]
Colossians 2: 2-4 tells us God is the true giver of wisdom.
Colossians2:2 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;
3 In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
4 And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words.
So if we seek wisdom let us turn to God’s word! Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
