Words to Ponder

At church this weekend a question was posed: What is the difference between knowledge and wisdom?

Several attempts were made before the answer that silenced the sanctuary was said: "Knowledge is what we take with us; wisdom is doing/knowing what leads to the most good and avoids the most evil/bad."

Isn't that beautiful?

Words can be a powerful builder, motivator; or, a dangerous weapon. I keep a collection of wise words I've heard through my years. When I hear words like those above, I am moved to live my life in a better way.

May we all know the meaning of wisdom and granted the strength to practice it.
