The Attributes of God- Similar and Dissimilar: Wisdom
Rev. Brian L. Kachelmeier
The Apostle Paul makes such a distinction between knowledge and wisdom when lists out the gifts of the Spirit. He says this in First Corinthians chapter twelve, “To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. To one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit,” (1 Corinthians 12:7-8, ESV) God is the source of all knowledge and wisdom. In the letter of James, we are told this, “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.” (James 1:5, ESV) Again, in humanity both knowledge and wisdom our acquired attributes. On the other hand, God has this attributes from His divine essence. He has all knowledge and wisdom from eternity. God gives knowledge and wisdom to humanity through His word.
