Psalm 49:3
My mouth will speak words of wisdom; the meditation of my heart will give you understanding.
Continuing with our series on spiritual gifts, this time we are reviewing the spiritual gift of wisdom which is similar to the spiritual gift of knowledge that we reviewed last time; however with a significant difference . In review, when you possess the spiritual gift of knowledge you gain a clearer perspective on life and given a divine insight on various circumstances and experiences that you would not have been privy to through your own senses or intellect.
The spiritual gift of wisdom differs in that fact that you will also possess the spiritual gift of knowledge; but you will also be privy to the insight and logic to act on your experiences by specifically applying Christian precepts (Ephesians 1:17). It is this distinct difference that made King Solomon the wisest King ever known.
Noted below are some scriptures of wisdom, enjoy!

How much better to get wisdom than gold, to get insight rather than silver!

The words of the mouth are deep waters, but the fountain of wisdom is a rushing stream.

The one who gets wisdom loves life; the one who cherishes understanding will soon prosper.

A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.
