Difference Between Knowledge, Understanding and Wisdom

Sunday, February 8, 2015

What is the difference between Knowledge, Understanding and Wisdom?

It could be illustrated this way:
Imagine you are standing in the middle of a road and a bus is coming toward you. 
First, you recognize that it is a bus —
That is knowledge.

Next, you realize that if you remain standing there, you will be hit by the bus- 
That is understanding!

So you jump out of the way of the bus-
That is wisdom!

Little wonder the Bible emphasizes the need for us to "safeguard practical wisdom."
It means our very life!
