“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,

And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.”

Proverbs 9:10 (NKJV)


“Now this is the commandment…

that you may fear the Lord your God,

to keep all His statutes and His


Deuteronomy 6:1-2 (NKJV)


If any of you lacks wisdom,

let him ask of God, who gives to all

liberally and without reproach,

and it will be given to him.

James 1:5 (NKJV)

Wisdom surpasses knowledge,

For theories change with age;

Information floods the media,

Truth and falsehood are unclear.


Wisdom is to fear the Lord,

To live according to His word,

To discern truth from falsehood,

To forsake evil for good.


God gives wisdom liberally,

To all who seek Him earnestly,

In times of doubt and need,

To avoid sin in thought and deed.


Lord and Master of my destiny;

You dictate how life should be;

Transform my mind anew,

With wisdom to fear and love You.
