Use Sound Judgement And Discernment

21 My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion:  22 So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck.  23 Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble.  24 When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.  25 Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh.  26 For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken. (Proverbs 3:21-26)

These verses cover the benefits of wisdom.  Wisdom is not knowledge.  But wisdom is how you use the knowledge that you have.  If any lack wisdom, he can ask for it from God and God will freely give it to him.  What are the benefits of wisdom?  They include life.  Not just long life but wisdom also provides quality life.  It provides a life of pleasantness and peace.  Wisdom provides safety which is simply the avoidance of trouble.  One can stay out of much trouble just by making wise choices and wise decisions.  Wisdom provides peaceful sleep.  As you use wisdom during the day, you can rest peacefully during the night.  Wisdom helps you to avoid traps set by the wicked.  And finally wisdom will provide confidence for future endeavors.  Wisdom will let you know that whatever you have to face, you can place all of your confidence in God.  Use sound judgement and discernment with God as your guide.  That is wisdom.
