Two Parts Of One . . .

Wisdom  . . .

One part 

of the equation 

is Wisdom, 

the other 

is Understanding.   

Like a hand in a glove. 

One is lost 

without the other. 


is the platform 

where both are revealed. 

Each unveils its power

harmonising in practice 

as one. 

Life's mysteries equate


biased viewpoints 

and . . .

Progressive change 

Is Born. 

Understanding . . .

Give your ears to it 

listen with all of them! 

Feel it, think it

and never stop drinking

from its fountains. 

Walk the path 

to it's vast treasuries. 

Seek and never stop seeking 

because . . .

On this path 

will also be found 

Wisdom . . .

They Are One.


Wisdom and understanding go together and as believers, we are strongly encouraged to pursue and acquire both. One without the other is like a bird with only one wing, it can flap around but not fly.

Wisdom is the insight to know what to say, how to say it and to say it at the right time. No matter what the information or revelation is about, the question is, when is it the right time to share it?

Proverbs guides us again. A fool is considered wise when he says nothing in a conversation he can't contribute to. Pro 17: 28

Understanding is being able to articulate and explain the spiritual consequences and give insight to the revelation or information. In short, explaining where the information fits. 


# - Do you now understand why these 2 are hand in glove with each other and work together?

# - Have you consistently sought out either one of these or both of them? If so how would you explain the importance of these to a new believer?

# - Could these both be seen and considered as the pearl of great price? I use the singular (pearl) because I see these both (Wisdom and Understanding) as one, how do you see them? 

Proverbs 2, is worthy of reading for definition and implementation. 

Proverbs 4:7 NKJV

Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding.

Proverbs 4:7 AMP

The beginning of wisdom is: Get [skillful and godly] wisdom [preeminent]! And with all your acquiring, get understanding [actively seek spiritual discernment, mature comprehension, and logical interpretation].

Proverbs 4:7 Passion 

 Wisdom is the most valuable commodity—so buy it!

 Revelation knowledge is what you need—so invest in it!
