I think it’s time we dispel the untruth that “wisdom comes with age”. False. I know that a lot of folks seem to think that wisdom comes at certain age, and that it just falls into your lap. NEWSFLASH: It doesn’t! Many people that I know have even pinpointed the arrival of wisdom to be at the age of 30. Nope. Not so. I’m no Confucius or Socrates but I do know that wisdom isn’t freely given. Wisdom works interchangeably with knowledge and understanding. Without both of these you haven’t any wisdom. Contrary to popular belief, there’s no ‘Wisdom Fairy’ who comes in the wee hours of of the night, waves a magic wand, and “Voila”, you’re suddenly overflowing with wisdom. If that were the case, mine eyes would not have to endure the folly frequently seen in the news feed of my Facebook account. You are aware that the opposite of wisdom is folly right? Don’t believe me? Pick up a bible and turn to the book of Proverbs…any chapter will do. It’s there. The opposite of someone who is wise is merely called simple. (Proverbs again) Simpletons, is what I like to call them. Tip: Please try to avoid discourse with these people at all costs. A migraine is sure to ensue shortly thereafter.
“Get Wisdom & Be Wise”
For the Lord gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. Proverbs 2:6
