Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

What is wisdom?

Wisdom means shrewdness,skillfulness,prudence.

According to Oxford dictionary

Wisdom means

==>The ability to make a decision based on the combination of knowledge, experience, and intuitive understanding.

==>The ability to know and apply spiritual truths

==>The ability to apply relevant knowledge in an insightful way, especially to different situations from that in which the knowledge was gained.

The summary of all this grammar is wisdom means to apply the knowledge you have gained rightly, it means to act wisely and not foolishly, it means to do things the Right way,doing the Right thing at the right time,living right,giving wise judgement and counsel..

==>When the Bible says wisdom is the principal thing, it means wisdom is the First thing you need to get or have before chasing other things in life..because without wisdom in a Man’s life he/she will work in errors and disobedience..

==>>God possessed wisdom from the day of creation, the First thing God had or possesed was wisdom, that was why he was able to create the heavens and the earth and every other things he created perfectly,without mistake and errors, and since then till now there has not be any chaos in God’s kingdom.

Pro 3:19 The LORDby wisdom hath founded the earth; by understandinghath he establishedthe heavens.

Pro 24:3 Through wisdom is an housebuilded; and byunderstanding it is established.

So, wisdom is a builder..

We have different types of wisdom

1.The wisdom of men: these are the wisdom men have,that is not from God.example of such wisdom is the wisdom you gain from school, the ones you gain from the course you red in school.when you have the wisdom of men you talk and reason like men,and your mind is limited because you can’t know more than what you are taught in school, you can’t know more than what is in your textbook..in a north shell,the wisdom of man is limited. 1Corinthian2:5 “That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.”
Isaiah29:14 “Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvelous work among this people, even a marvelous work and a wonder: for the wisdomof their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid’ .

1Corint3:19 For the wisdomof this foolishness with God. For it is written,He taketh the wise in their own craftiness

2.The wisdom of the Devil: This is otherwise known as devilish wisdom.

Don’t be surprise The Devil also gives wisdom too.

Anything God does,the Devil try to mimic or copy it,but his own is always fake.God’s own is the original.

==>any wisdom that you have on how to dupe people, 419,Yahoo, yahoo,fraudster, lieing to get money they are all devilish wisdom.any wisdom to destroy and not to contribute is a devilish wisdom. Remember John 10:10 “the thief (devil)cometh not,but to kill,steal and destroy”


So any wisdom you have on how to steal,kill and destroy is of the Devil, please desist from it..

3.The wisdom of God.

This is the 3rd kind of wisdom we have, the wisdom of God superceeds Evey other type of wisdom..

This was the wisdom that functioned in the life of people like Jesus,Moses Solomon, apostle Paul and a host of others.

Jesus at the age of 12, was already reasoning with doctors and teachers of the law.and they all Marveled and said what manner of wisdom was upon him as at that age..

The whole word marveled at the wisdom of king Solomon, his wisdom was unimaginable, unbeatable..do you know why? God gave it to him.

1Kings4:29 And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much, and largeness of heart, even as the sand that is on the seashore

How do Get the wisdom of God

James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom , let him ask of God , that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not ; and it shall be given him
