Wisdom is a deep understanding and realizing of people, things, events or situations, resulting in the ability to choose or act or inspire to consistently produce the optimum results with a minimum of time, energy or thought. It is the ability to optimally (effectively and efficiently) apply perceptions and knowledge and so produce the desired results. Wisdom is also the comprehension of what is true or right coupled with optimum judgment as to action. Synonyms include: sagacity, discernment, or insight. Wisdom often requires control of one"s emotional reactions (the "passions") so that one"s principles, reason and knowledge prevail to determine one"s actions.
Four Types of Wisdom
There are four types of wisdom: First, there was the perfect wisdom that was with God "in the beginning" as He created the worlds. The second type of wisdom is the wisdom of the world. It is according to the laws and principles of man. Third is the "wisdom of Solomon" given for man. Fourth is the wisdom of God for man.
Consider how great was this "wisdom of Solomon" that it was inspired by God and placed in the Holy Scriptures. How good it would be for the man who adheres to that advice. How noble and renowned that "The queen of the south shall rise up in judgment with the men of this generation, and condemn them: for she came from the utmost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and behold, a greater than Solomon is here" Luke 11:31.
How much greater must be the wisdom of God.
