Wisdom is allowing our failings to become our teacher.

Wisdom is learning from our short comings and changing our response. It is the ability to effectively and efficiently apply our knowledge, perceptions and schema (what we know to be true) so that we can produce positive outcomes. Wisdom is not about just comprehending what is right, good and true but also activating sound judgement to also do what is right. It is controlling our emotions, passions and reactions to bring about a favourable action. Good sense and reason prevail and as a result insight and discernment are firmly established in our life. Gaining wisdom is a life long lesson. I am still learning!

What a great definition of wisdom. The verse "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom comes to mind." I pray I'll understand.

Take care!

Excellent! I love that God is so merciful that he allows us to learn from our mistakes.

Perhaps your last sentence is at the core of wisdom, too. We must submit to ever learning, ever seeking, ever pursuing wisdom. If we do not, pride creeps in and steals that which we have learned.

Me too! Thankful that HE is patient with me in my "learning" journey!
