Wisdom is the ability to understand how to apply the knowledge and truths of the Word of God.

My respect and reverence for God is the beginning of obtaining the knowledge of God.  This knowledge of God brings an understanding of God to me.  By understanding the knowledge of God, I have the beginning of the understanding of the wisdom of God.  Wisdom instructs me to respect and reverence God.   (circular thought)

After my beginning above, my respect and reverence for God leads to life, abiding or steadfast satisfaction, and protection from evil.  Also, because of my respect and reverence for God - riches, honor and life are mine.

Knowing the Wisdom of God shall multiply the days and years of my life.  I am a happy man because I have found and understand the wisdom of God!

The Wisdom of God far exceeds the accumulation of silver, rubies or fine gold.   Wisdom is more precious than pearls.


Wisdom brings the longevity, the riches and the honor.  Further, there is nothing I can dream of or desire that can be compared to the value of the Wisdom of God.

Lastly, I will hear and heed reproof by the Word of God which renders life.   This will help me to receive the understanding of God.  Consequently, reproof will cause me to remain wise.

In Summary:

Fear (respect) and reverence for God in humility

leads to knowledge in me


leads to understanding in me


leads to wisdom in me


brings me life, riches and honor!
