Is Knowledge Wisdom?

I can read books or the Bible and gain knowledge, but does that mean I have wisdom?  Wisdom ads knowledge and insight to the equation.  But how do I become wise?

Wisdom isn’t something you have it is something you gain through experience.  For example, I am wise enough to know not to put a fork in a socket. I don’t think I have ever tried, but it makes sense.  I thought it out and decided from my knowledge that it is not a good idea.

But that is earthly wisdom.  How do we gain Godly wisdom?  That requires acceptance that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God.

Then after studying the Bible, we gain understanding, then through application of the Bible, we become wise.  Want a shortcut?  Sorry, I don’t have one.

Proverbs 9:10: The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
