Wisdom: Don’t say you have it if you don’t.

01 Jul , 2014

The soundness of an action or decision with regard to the application of experience, knowledge and good judgment.

Soundness – Having considered all aspects of an action or decision before taking the action or making the decision.

Regard – Consideration for, Concern for, or Respect for-

Application –The placement of one thing beside another as touching or adherence of one thing to another so that they touch or are connected.

So wisdom is considering all aspects of an action or decision before taking the action or making the decision by considering, concerning yourself with and having respect for the other things and/or people that will be impacted by that act or decision and using as your basis, prior events that have occurred in your personal life, what you know (general knowledge and experiences of others), and your ability to judge matters with a “sound” (trustworthy, reliable) mind in order to avoid consequences that teach a lesson you’ve already learned.

[James 1:5 ]

Wisdom: Don’t say you have it if you don’t. And if you don’t now you know how to get it and apply it.
