I am amazed at anyone who can restore old cars. If you give me enough tools and enough time, I could go out here to just about any car in the parking lot and take it apart. That’s knowledge. But there’s no way I could ever put it back together again. And that’s what wisdom is. Wisdom is the ability to take all the knowledge of the world and put it together to see things from God’s perspective. Knowledge is just the ability to analyze things—and that’s what the world does—that’s why it’s called the spirit of the world. Knowledge is needed to pass the test in school, but wisdom is needed to pass the test of life.
