Life is?? #228 What is Wisdom?

** So where does wisdom lead in human life? With the accumulation of knowledge, we can either use it to benefit for the general good or else cause much needless pain and suffering! **

Wisdom or sapience is the ability to think and act using knowledge, experience, understanding, common sense, and insight.

There appears to be consensus that wisdom is associated with attributes such as compassion, experiential self-knowledge, non-attachment and virtues such as ethics and benevolence.

Wisdom has been defined in many different ways, a variety of measurement scales have been developed, and several subtypes of wisdom have been proposed.

Out of these, phronesis and sophia are two key subtypes of wisdom.
In the classical Greek tradition, there is a distinction between sophia "wisdom" and
phronesis "prudence, practical intelligence".

Educational perspectives
Truth and Wisdom assist History in writing by
Jacob de Wit, 1754

Public schools in the US have an approach to character education. Eighteenth century philosophers such as Benjamin Franklin, referred to this as training wisdom and virtue. Traditionally, schools share the responsibility to build character and wisdom along with parents and the community.

Nicholas Maxwell, a contemporary philosopher in the United Kingdom, advocates that academia ought to alter its focus from the acquisition of knowledge to seeking and promoting wisdom, which he defines as the capacity to realize what is of value in life, for oneself and others.

He teaches that new knowledge and technological know-how increase our power to act which, without wisdom, may cause human suffering and death as well as human benefit. Wisdom is the application of knowledge to attain a positive goal by receiving instruction in governing oneself.

Looking at the authoritative direction of the Lord God in our existence we see this Proverb in Psalms 90:12:
" Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. " Amen!

Have you began to seek knowledge and temper it with wisdom to create a life of greater benefit?

If not then start learning how to use your wisdom to modify and control yourself!
