The Bible says… “My people are destroyed for a lack of Knowledge” Hosea 4:6
It also says, “With all thy getting get understanding” Proverbs 4:7
And finally, “Wisdom is the principle thing” Proverbs 4:7
Every lack in life is caused by a deficit in Knowledge, Understanding or Wisdom.
The primary problem of the Human Race is a lack of Wisdom.
I did NOT say, a lack of education nor a lack of intelligence… I said, a lack of WISDOM.
There is a difference!
According to the Bible, the foundation of wisdom is respect for God.
In this verse the Hebrew word for ‘Fear’ is ‘Yirah’ and can be translated, “respect, reverence, piety.”
So, one can only attain wisdom by respecting the One who created Wisdom in the first place.
No wonder God says Atheists are fools… They don’t know enough to even acknowledge the One who created Wisdom.
There is a universal Law that says, “You attract what you respect.”
They don’t respect God so they cannot attract Wisdom… ergo, they are fools!
In other words, their very ideology dooms them to remaining spiritually ignorant.
Here is a definition, a description and an illustration of what Knowledge, Understanding and Wisdom are:
Knowledge is the reception of accurate information
Understanding is the correct perception of that information
Wisdom is the effective application of that information
Knowledge is gained when you receive new information
Understanding is gained when you receive the explanation of the information
Wisdom is gained from effectively applying what you know and understand
Knowledge is ingesting and digesting food for the soul
Understanding is absorbing food for the soul
Wisdom is effective action from assimilating food for the soul
