Wisdom

Lots of things come automatically with age, but wisdom isn’t one of them.

There are two kinds of wisdom: worldly wisdom and spiritual wisdom.

Worldly wisdom involves applying knowledge and human understanding to certain factual situations. This type of wisdom can usually be explained in the context of benefits and detriments. (For example, it is not wise to insult your boss due to the detriment of unemployment.)

Spiritual wisdom doesn’t rely on human understanding. In fact, spiritual wisdom refers to a belief system that can be comprehended only through spiritual insight. (For example, those who do not know God cannot understand how it is possible to sense His direction when He can’t be seen or heard.)

Worldly wisdom can be obtained through experience and gives you insight into human nature. Spiritual wisdom comes through the Holy Spirit and gives you insight into God’s nature.

The wisdom we speak of is the secret wisdom of God….But we know these things because God has revealed them to us by his Spirit.

1 Corinthians 2:7,10
