Are knowledge and wisdom the same? Can you have one without the other?
Growing in our life journey brings us to many milestones. We celebrate when we reach them and acknowledge the achievements we make. We gain knowledge through learning in school. Memorizing facts, solving equations, discovering historical timelines and more.
Take a look around your environment. Do you see evidence of knowledge? What about wisdom? Do others recognize them? How are knowledge and wisdom shared? Is it accepted?
I know knowledge can be found in textbooks, books from the library, informational videos on the internet, museums and other places we search out. However, knowledge can be found in an individual. My husband will get phone calls on questions to answer as people would do on a google search. However, the knowledge he has would not be found in a search. Is this knowledge or wisdom? Maybe both! The work he does is not something many people are doing. Will this be lost when he stops?
Wisdom is more important in our life, I believe. Wisdom fuels our hearts and refines our minds. It comes to us through our experiences and knowledge; when we add our faith the intentions are made clear. When it comes to faith you are not to stand still. In faith, knowledge and wisdom, you are to continue to grow, learn and live every day of your life fully. The more you do, the better you become. If you share your knowledge, wisdom, and faith, the more seeds you plant, it will continue to grow.
Share, grow, learn and experience. I am reminded of the seasons when I think about the importance of the factors that keep us moving forward.
