“But where can wisdom be found, and where is understanding located?…But God understands the way to wisdom, and He knows its location…He said to mankind, “The fear of the Lord—that is wisdom. And to turn from evil is understanding.”” Job 28:12, 23, 28
It’s not in the ocean. It cannot be bought. Only God knows the path to it, and He has revealed where the path begins. Fear the Lord. Turn from evil.
Fear the Lord…not other people. Image management, white lies, subtle slander…these are symptoms of fear of people. Turn from these.
