Charles Spurgeon said “Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. To know is not to be wise. Many men know a great deal and are all the greater fools for it. There is no fool, so great a fool as a knowing fool”
The right application of knowledge is what is called WISDOM. Many are knowledgeable but they aren’t wise in their application of knowledge.
What does the Bible say about using wisdom rightly?
How to apply wisdom by using Knowledge aright according to the Bible
Proverbs 15:2 “The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness“
Desire to be wise
You might be filled with adequate knowledge about the goals you want achieved in life, but if you don’t understand that though knowledge is considered a priceless jewel; it could be a deadly poisoned if handled foolishly.
Take, for example, a child born into a godly home; from her cradle unto adolescent; she had been groomed in the principles of the Bible, she has the full understanding who Jesus is, she knew he died for mankind on the cross, she has enough understanding of rapture and the great tribulation but here is one thing she does wrongly with the knowledge she has; she never for once gave her life to Christ. To her, it was a WASTE OF PRECIOUS TIME AND YOUTHFUL EXUBERANCE.
What is the knowledge you have?
Let me be scriptural, to you reading this; perhaps you have the full knowledge of who Jesus is? You know he died for you; you know about heaven and hell; oh such precious jewel you have but you believe being a child of God through salvation experience is foolishness.
For days now, we have been on the quote challenge. I believe, you have been touched, challenged and motivated. Here is my plea; make good use of the knowledge you have gained, it is a precious jewel.
Are you still in the wilderness of sin?
Having adequate knowledge of the death of Jesus for your redemption?
Oh, please! It is high time you use that knowledge rightly
Take a bold step to salvation
Don’t be foolish with the knowledge you have,
Take an action
Jesus did not despise the cross because of you; he died for you
Beyond knowledge, have a right application of this understanding
Repent and be saved
For you are beloved of God
