Wisdom dwells together with prudence and finds out the knowledge of witty inventions. [Proverbs 8:12]. Wisdom and prudence are inseparable. Prudence is taking a rightful decision amidst a challenging situation. God tells us in Deuteronomy 4:5 to obey his statutes and judgments and this will be our wisdom and understanding in the sight of nations. The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom and to depart from iniquity is understanding. [Job 28:28, Proverbs 9:10, Proverbs 1:7, Proverbs 15:33, Psalms 111:10]. With wisdom, you will be able to detect the traps set by the evil one. But the wisdom that comes from God is first pure, peaceable, gentle, easily entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, without hypocrisy. James 3:17.
