Does Google Hold Knowledge or Wisdom?

Fear
of the Lord is the foundation of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in
good judgment.

Proverbs 9:10 (NLT)

We swipe, type and click our way to knowledge, however,
knowledge does not make us wise.

Knowing God makes us wise. (tweet this)

The phrase ‘fear of the Lord’ doesn’t mean we’re
frightened by Him. It means we revere Him exceedingly, acknowledge His awesome goodness,
and receive His instruction. This fear gives us confidence (Proverbs
14:26
), helps us resist sin (Exodus
20:20
), act justly (Psalm
23:3-4
), and get good sleep (Proverbs
19:23
)

The fear of the Lord is the foundation wisdom.

The fundamental first step to becoming wise is
recognizing His power and ultimate sovereignty over all. There is no greater
source of wisdom than God.

The second step is knowledge of the Holy One –
knowing God.

We get to know God through relationship. We talk to
Him in prayer and listen to His voice, but sometimes communicating with God
feels one way. We want Him to speak clearly, answer our questions, guide our
steps, and impart wisdom. We forget that God already has. It’s called the
Bible.

The third step is making God’s word part of who we
are so it’s readily accessible when needed. We must be consulting scripture
every day, not merely reading, but digging beneath the surface, seeking its
meaning for our lives, and discovering the God who would speak these words. And
know this:

When we ask for wisdom, God generously gives it. (James
1:5

Which
step toward wisdom do you find most difficult: fearing God, knowing God, or
finding meaning in Scripture?
