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.

Get Wisdom

Wisdom says, “lay aside immaturity, and live, and walk in the way of insight.”  That implies getting up and leaving the table, going back to where you were called from and sharing the invitation.  The seats at this table will never be full!  This is a perfect party from which no-one will be turned away once they respond.
