True wisdom starts with a healthy respect for God. In Proverbs it says, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction” Proverbs 1:7 (KJV).
We live in an age where believing in God is considered to be ridiculous by some. In 1st Corinthians it says, “Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God” 1 Corinthians 3:18-19 (KJV).
Is your wisdom worth having? Unless it comes from God it’s not wisdom at all.
