Wisdom, Knowledge, and Understanding Part II
This week we’re exploring the differences between wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. Let’s begin with Understanding.
The Hebrew meaning of this word has been defined as, “perceptive insight with the ability to judge.”
A consulting client once asked me and his other advisors to help him with an issue. One of the advisors recommended a plan that was immoral.
It was my time in God’s Word that enabled me to realize the perils of this choice and to gain understanding of the situation, resulting in a better solution.
Job 28:28 teaches, “Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; And to depart from evil is understanding.”
To gain understanding we need to use our senses to listen and observe, but the ability to judge appropriately comes from understanding God’s Word.
