Bible Topics: Wisdom

Definition: The God-given ability to judge or discern correctly and to follow the best course of action, based on knowledge and understanding; learning and experience acquired over a period of time; ability to see beneath the surface of things.

1. Wisdom is an invaluable gift of God.

2. Wisdom is one of the most important virtues in life.

3. Wisdom -- or the lack of it -- can make the difference between success and failure, victory and defeat.

4. Wisdom begins with a fear (reverence, respect) of the Lord.

5. Wisdom is the ability to see matters as the Lord sees them, in order to judge them correctly.

6. Wisdom is to rightly apply and then follow the Word of God. It is built upon a knowledge and understanding of God's Word.

7. We behave wisely when we prayerfully look to the Lord for guidance.

8. Wisdom is also gained through godly counsel, correction and instruction.

9. Personal experience also teaches wisdom.

10. Wisdom is a gift of the Spirit, which we can receive by petitioning God.

11. Though wisdom is a gift of God, we must earnestly seek it and apply ourselves to receive it.

12. The Lord gives His wisdom to those who do not trust in their own.

13. The wisdom of this world is not the wisdom of God.

14. Wisdom and obedience to God go hand in hand.

15. The common sense that the Lord gives about practical matters is also a part of His gift of wisdom.

16. It's wise to be prayerful and cautious.

17. In conversation, the wise are sometimes silent, never hasty, always prayerful.

18. When we are guided by the Lord's wisdom, the results are always good.

Dear Visitor, In December 2016, due to poorer and poorer eyesight, I went to an eye doctor and was told I have glaucoma and advanced cataracts. The doctor said I need two operations to restore my eyesight. However, I cannot afford to have medical surgery on my eyes at this time (now February) because of low income. The jobs I work at are seasonal with spring and autumn being the best. It won't be till some time in April I may be able to earn money locally again. Because of medical insurance, the operations should not be much more than a few hundred dollars each, but like everyone else, I also have to get enough money for rent, food and utilities which makes it harder to save money. I also had an unexpected medical expense in January for an enlarged prostrate condition which cost about $200. Thanks be to God I am nearly 100% recovered from it!

A few people have already sent me some funds, so far four friends and three people I do not know personally but who apparently appreciate my Deep Truths website! For them I am eternally grateful.

If God touches your heart, and especially if you have been a frequent visitor to this website, would you please send me a gift through Paypal so I afford to get my eyes fixed? I am also the webmaster of and you can read my bio on it.

You can send to my Paypal account:

Because Deep Truths is not an official charity recognized by Paypal, please do not designate the funds as a "donation" for Paypal has rules against non-registered charities receiving gifts. It should be designated for "services rendered without shipping."

I pray you find this website a blessing.
Sincerely in Christ,
James Arendt
