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!
