Knowledge vs Wisdom. What's the Difference?

So, let's kick things off by exploring the difference between knowledge and wisdom.

Knowledge refers to the collection of facts, figures, and information that we acquire over time. It's what we learn in school, read in books, or hear from others. Now, wisdom is a whole different ball game.

Wisdom is about understanding the deeper principles of life, knowing when to apply that knowledge, and when to hold back. It's about being able to see the bigger picture and make decisions that are both practical and ethical. With so many talk shows, self-help books, and advice floating around, it's easy to get lost in the noise. So, how do we find our way?

Well, first, we need to learn how to discern knowledge from wisdom. A good starting point is asking ourselves who we turn to for advice and guidance on important life issues. Do you believe in a higher power? Your answers to these questions will help you identify the source of your wisdom.

Now that we've touched on the difference between knowledge and wisdom, let's dive into some questions we should ask ourselves to evaluate the messages we receive. Inspired by Chasing Carrots, here are some key questions to consider:

  1. What is the original source of the message?
  2. What kind of people does the message produce?
  3. Why should you listen to the message?
  4. Does anyone profit financially from the message?
  5. What result does the message have in people's lives?
  6. Where does the message ultimately lead you?

By asking these questions, you can ensure you're following a path that aligns with your purpose and beliefs.
