The Scriptures tells us to get the Wisdom and Understanding of GOD. But what are these attributes? I like how it was said that Wisdom is not just knowledge, but the “know how.” God’s Wisdom enables a person to apply biblical principals to live life in the best and most effective manner for pleasing Him. Understanding is just this : discernment, enlightened intelligence, and comprehension of the ways of God. Proverbs chapter 8 goes more into detail of Wisdom. Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, King Solomon wrote:
Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not, neither reject the words of my mouth. Forsake her not, (wisdom) and she will shall preserve thee: love her,(wisdom) and she shall keep thee.
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and in all your getting get understanding. Exalt her (wisdom) and she shall promote you: she shall bring you honor, when you embrace her. Proverbs 4:5-8
Study to show thyself approved unto GOD, a workman that need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth. But avoid and reject profane and vain (secular, disrespectful to our LORD) babblings, (gossip, confusion, self-obsessed talking): For it will increase unto more ungodliness. 2 Timothy 2:15-16
