Where Do We Get Wisdom?

by Stacia McKeever on March 30, 2015

Only the one true God of the Bible has all wisdom (Colossians 2:2–3). So, the best way to know true wisdom is by reading the book God wrote—the Bible (2 Timothy 3:16). God used more than 40 different men to write down what He wanted us to know about Him and how to be wise.

There are two sections in the Bible. The 39 books of the Old Testament were written in the years before Jesus came to earth. The 27 books of the New Testament were written after Jesus returned to heaven about 2,000 years ago.

God gives us His wisdom throughout these books, but one book in particular is filled with wise sayings and principles.
