Wisdom v.s. Knowledge

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instructions.

Proverbs 1:7

For wisdom will enter your mind, and knowledge will delight your heart.

Proverbs 2:10

I could read proverbs all day and not find or understand all the verses in there about wisdom and knowledge. There are so many! I also like to look up quotes about wisdom and knowledge, one of my personal favorites is by Miles Kingston,  “Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit, wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.”

Wisdom , for me,  is the ability to make good choices and good decisions and good judgements.Wisdom is having the ability to do something wrong and not doing it.

Knowledge is information which someone is aware of. Something you could find in a book.

Anyone smart could be a criminal, anyone with wisdom would not.
