The Bible sees Wisdom in two ways. Let’s look at the first way when the Bible contrasts Wisdom with Folly, picturing them as twin sisters. There, Folly always seeks immediate gratification without regard how thing will turn our in the end.
The wise Sister embraces the hard work and the disappointments that only eventually lead to satisfaction, while Folly ends up a sad Sister after she has grabbed all the gusto she can.
The Bible’s nobler form of Wisdom is the Truth that comes from above. Such Wisdom is not easy to come by. But wisdom always comes from prayerfully surrendering yourself to whatever truth emerges from your earnest searching.
