The Bible is a source of wisdom, teaches us about wisdom and what it is to be wise. Wisdom starts with reverence for God.
To have knowledge, you must first have reverence for the Lord. (Proverbs 1:7)
But if any of you lack wisdom, you should pray to God, who will give it to you; because God gives generously and graciously to all. (James 1:5)
It is the Lord who gives wisdom; from him come knowledge and understanding. (Proverbs 2:6)
So be careful how you live. Don’t live like ignorant people, but like wise people. Make good use of every opportunity you have, because these are evil days. Don’t be fools, then, but try to find out what the Lord wants you to do. (Ephesians 5:15-17)
Are there any of you who are wise and understanding? You are to prove it by your good life, by your good deeds performed with humility and wisdom. (James 3:13)
“So then, anyone who hears these words of mine and obeys them is like a wise man who built his house on rock. The rain poured down, the rivers flooded over, and the wind blew hard against that house. But it did not fall, because it was built on rock. “But anyone who hears these words of mine and does not obey them is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain poured down, the rivers flooded over, the wind blew hard against that house, and it fell. And what a terrible fall that was!” (Matthew 7:24-27)
and ask the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, to give you the Spirit, who will make you wise and reveal God to you, so that you will know him. (Ephesians 1:17)
I praise you and honor you, God of my ancestors.
You have given me wisdom and strength;
you have answered my prayer
and shown us what to tell the king.
The words of good people are wise,
and they are always fair.
They keep the law of their God in their hearts
and never depart from it.
But God has brought you into union with Christ Jesus, and God has made Christ to be our wisdom. By him we are put right with God; we become God’s holy people and are set free. (1 Corinthians 1:30)
