What is Wisdom as defined by Scripture?

(Ps 111:10 [KJV])
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.

Here we will look at knowledge, smarts, stupidity, and ignorance in the light of Wisdom.

For man, wisdom only begins when he fears God. A man only becomes wise when he fears the God of creation. Why? Man can only get wisdom from God, and He only gives it when fear begins (Ps 111:10) in the heart of man towards Him (God). It is also written.
Prov 15:33 [KJV])
The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.

Let us look at the encyclopedia’s definition of wisdom and from there we examine how it relates to knowledge, smarts (intelligence), ignorance, and stupidity. 

Wisdom, sapience, or sagacity is the ability to think and act using knowledge, experience, understanding, common sense and insight. Wisdom is associated with attributes such as unbiased judgment, compassion, experiential self-knowledge, self-transcendence and non-attachment, and virtues such as ethics and benevolence. Ref: Wikipedia,

Someone can have lots of knowledge (MD, PhD etc), but without wisdom FROM GOD, they can potentially make a mess of their own life as well as the people around them. Exp. Look at the highly qualified people that have ruined companies, countries, and their own homes. Having a lot of knowledge with no wisdom from God is like a bomb waiting to go off in every direction if lit. Having little knowledge in combination with God’s wisdom is a man that is destined for greatness. WISDOM gives man the ability (God’s instruction) to use the knowledge He has to fulfill the will of God in his life. What is the will of God? God’s will is that we keep His commandments in everything that we do – Read more about the Will of God. It is written.
(John 14:15 [KJV])
If ye love me, keep my commandments.

SMART (INTELLIGENCE) with no God in your life:
People can outsmart others and get ahead. They work the system and they are quick-witted to know what to do and when to do it. They do not fear God so they do not have wisdom (again, no beginning of wisdom in their life). They rise to the top and are looked upon by others as brilliant people. Being smart does not make you wise. Why? With no God in their life, the end of smart people is death, they will not enter into God’s Kingdom. If your first goal is not to seek God’s kingdom, you may be smart but you are a fool (seek ye first the Kingdom of God – Matt 6:33). 

Ignorance is when you do not have the knowledge to know what to do, or how to do it. A person can be ignorant of what is written in the word of God and act out thinking he is correct in what he is doing in the eyes of God. Stupidity is to find out what God’s word says, but then you decide to continue in your own wrong way of doing things. Why do you continue in the wrong way? You love your sin. 

TTGM comments:
We encourage you to seek first the Kingdom of God and its righteousness. Understand who God is and know this, He holds your eternal destiny in His hands. If you understand what this means, it should strike fear in your heart and should move you to get yourself right before Him. He will then give you the wisdom to know what to do, and when to do it. 

Knowledgeable, smart, and ignorant people that do not fear God or know Him will all go to hell. When we begin to fear God (tremble in our knees); just to know who He is and what it means to live without Him. Wisdom begins. 

Be blessed in understanding.
