Wisdom is Practical Smarts


We’re all familiar with Proverbs 9:10, The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.”

With wisdom God created the world.  With wisdom God crafted our salvation on the cross.  With wisdom we are His workmanship to do good works.

How do we practice wisdom in our own life?

Wisdom is practicing practical smarts.
