Two kinds of Wisdom

A picture of wisdom was drawn by the Christian comedian, Milton Jones, comparing it to cutlery. 

He said wisdom is not like that special set of knives and forks you keep for certain occasions, locked away in a velvet-lined box – all pristine and shiny. We used to have a set like that home (fish knives), brought out only on special occasions. 

Rather wisdom is like a Swiss Army knife, worn and pitted, used and useful, honed and sharpened.
