Inspirational Word of the Week


What is Wisdom?

Wisdom is a deep understanding and realization of people, things, events or situations, resulting in the ability to apply perceptions, judgments and actions in keeping with this understanding. It often requires control of one's emotional reactions (the "passions") so that universal principles, reason and knowledge prevail to determine one's actions.

Wisdom is also the comprehension of what is true coupled with optimum judgment as to action. Synonyms include: sagacity, discernment, or insight.

You should know the difference between Knowledge and Wisdom:

Knowledge is a familiarity with someone or something, which can include facts, information, descriptions, or skills acquired through experience or education.

 Wisdom is  acting on that knowledge. Living it out in your life in a manner that reflects a deeper understanding of the knowledge and how it affects others. So really, the difference between knowledge and wisdom can be found in what it takes to get you from just knowing, to actually living it out.
