No one is born wise, the box in the brain labeled “wisdom” is empty. It depends on each of us how we fill it in, when and if at all. The Word of God tells us very clearly about the importance of wisdom and that as follows: ” Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.” (Pr. 4:7). This is the Word of God for each of us, but it is also the word of man who had received that wisdom from God, because he asked for it from God (1Ki. 3: 9-12 // Jam. 1: 5, 6). It was Solomon, the son of King David. This wisdom is recorded in the 31 chapters of the Book of Proverbs. But there is also the wisdom that a man himself had collected during his lifetime, either from his own experience or from other wise people. This wisdom was usually collected in the so-called. “folk’s sayings”, or proverbs. Thus, there are God’s proverbs that come to us directly from the Spirit of God and His infinite Wisdom, and the folk’s proverbs that come to us through our life experiences, because He created man with certain degree of intelligence, which has the ability to discern what is wise and what is stupid. Whether man has acquired and collected these God’s and the human proverbs through his degree of intelligence into his own life, and also governs his life by them – this is a very big question, and everyone would have to answer it for himself. I collected a few that have come to me through my life experiences with the Lord, and some are directly quoted from the Word of God.
