Wisdom. Have you ever contemplated this word and its meaning? No, of course
not. Why would you waste time thinking about something humans gain with study,
life experience, or just seem to possess? Still, as wasteful as it may seem,
lately I’ve been pondering wisdom.
true, wisdom abounds. There’s academic wisdom, science wisdom, business,
sports, etc. Yet, this is acquired wisdom – knowledge gathered and expanded over
years of study, trial and error. When knowledge in any subject is learned,
wisdom usually follows. Wisdom applies the knowledge and these two fit together
like a nut and bolt.
Isn’t it interesting we even have the capacity to
develop wisdom? How do we do it? And why is our amazing brain able to take in
all we learn and experience and then produce wisdom?
