12 Knowledge and Wisdom Knowledge is limited. Wisdom is unlimited. Albert Einstein Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers. Lord Tennyson The doorstep to the temple of wisdom is a knowledge of our own ignorance. Benjamin Franklin There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the LORD. Proverbs 21:30 KJV The fear of the LORD teaches a man wisdom, and humility comes before honour. Proverbs 15:33 KJV The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. Proverbs 9:10 KJV

14 God is omniscient, He knows all things. Our foolish human pride is offended because God’s wisdom is usually contrary to our desires. As we allow the Holy Ghost to lead and guide us, we will learn God’s will and His way, and be happy to walk in His paths. Wisdom - Application Is not wisdom found among the aged? Does not long life bring understanding? Job 12:12 KVJ
