On Wisdom

God’s Word tells us over and over the importance of wisdom. True wisdom comes from God and is embodied in Jesus. We find true wisdom through the Holy Scriptures. Read the Word daily. Believe the Word. Trust the Word to make you truly wise.

“In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.”
John 1:1-2 KJV

I leave you with just a few verses and quotes on wisdom. They speak for themselves.
