智慧、知識和理解

WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING

 

如果你像我一樣,在工作上需要做很多的決定,所以花了很多時間尋求智慧,我覺得你會同意「知識和理解對決策過程也很重要」這句話。我發現有趣的是,聖經中的許多經文都在同一個篇章提到了智慧、知識和理解。

 

「智慧、知識和理解」這三個詞有不同的含義,但聖經指出它們是有關連的。理解來自學習上帝的話語;知識來自上帝為我們提供的經驗和技能,智慧來自於我們隨著時間的推移所獲得的了解和知識的積累。然而,這三個字最終都來自上帝。正如箴言26節所教導的:「因為,耶和華賜人智慧;知識和聰明都由他口而出。」

 

為了更多了解它們三者之間的關係,讓我們從「理解」開始一個一個審視每個字。

「理解」這個詞的希伯來語含義被定義為「具有判斷能力的敏銳洞察力。」一位客戶找我和其他顧問諮商,希望我們幫助他解決問題。其中一位顧問建議他用不道德的計劃。我卻因著上帝的話語,認識到這種選擇很危險。因為我理解這種情況,所以制定了更好的解決方案。

 

約伯記2828節教導我們說:「他對人說:敬畏主就是智慧;遠離惡便是聰明。」為了能理解,我們需要用感官傾聽和觀察,但適當判斷的能力來自於上帝的話語。

 

知識來自上帝。只要我們夠謙虛地學習,就能用祂給的經驗,技能,才能和天賦面對生活。

年輕的時候,我是一家銀行的信貸員,我的第一筆中小企業貸款是一場災難。 SBA(聯邦中小企業)貸款需要注意非常多細節和繳交數十個文件檔。由於沒有經驗,我把貸款申請弄得一塌糊塗。在主管評價了我的表現之後,我就謙卑地接受了失敗。但這次失敗也提供了我在往後的職業生涯中,在SBA貸款方面表現優異所需的知識。

箴言17節教導說:「敬畏耶和華是知識的開端;愚妄人藐視智慧和訓誨。」敬畏神 敬畏神提供了我們得到知識和卓越必要的謙卑。

智慧來自我們多年得到的知識和理解。當我們犯了夠多的錯誤時,所獲得的知識就讓我們有智慧。你可以說智慧的應用是策略性的,而知識的應用則是戰略性的。

我的第一筆生意開始於21%的商業貸款利息。因為客戶在財務上過度擴張,從這筆貸款中我得到了痛苦的教訓。這次教訓帶給我智慧,讓我能幫助那些有債務危機的人。

 

運用我們因著時間的學到的經驗和教訓,提供了我們獲得智慧的一條途徑,但再一次我們需要謙虛。正如箴言910節總結的那樣:「敬畏耶和華是智慧的開端;認識至聖者便是聰明。」

WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING

 

By Rick Boxx

 

If you are like me, you spend a lot of time seeking wisdom for the many work decisions that need made. And I think you would agree that knowledge and understanding also are important to the decision-making process. I have found it interesting to discover many verses in the Bible make reference to wisdom, knowledge and understanding all in the same passage.

These three words have different meanings, but the Scriptures point out they build on each other. It says Understanding comes from learning God’s Word. Knowledge comes from the experiences and skills God provides to us, and Wisdom comes from an accumulation of the understanding and knowledge we receive over time. All three traits, however, ultimately come from God. As Proverbs 2:6 teaches, “For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.”

To better comprehend how they relate, let’s take a look at each term individually, beginning with Understanding.

The Hebrew meaning of this word has been defined as, “perceptive insight with the ability to judge.” A consulting client once asked me and his other advisors to help him with an issue. One of the advisors recommended a plan that was immoral. It was my time in God’s Word that enabled me to realize the perils of this choice and to gain understanding of the situation, resulting in a better solution.

 

Job 28:28 teaches, “Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; And to depart from evil is understanding.” To gain understanding we need to use our senses to listen and observe. But the ability to judge appropriately comes from understanding God’s Word.

 

Knowledge comes from God, through the experiences, skills, talents and gifts He provides, allowing us to confront in life – provided we’re humble enough to learn.

As a young loan officer at a bank, my first Small Business Administration loan was a disaster. SBA loans require lots of attention to detail and dozens of documentation challenges. With no previous experience, I made a mess of a loan application, but after my superior critiqued my performance, I humbly accepted my failure. That failure provided the knowledge I needed to excel in SBA loans later. In my career

Provers 1:7 teaches, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.”
Fear of the Lord – reverential awe – provides the humility necessary to gain knowledge and excel later.

 

Wisdom emerges out of the knowledge and understanding we gain over the years. When we have made enough mistakes, the knowledge gained enables us to have wisdom. You could say the application of wisdom is strategic, while knowledge is more tactical.

My first business began with a business loan of 21% interest. Painful lessons learned from that loan, and bank customers of mine overextended financially, provided me with wisdom to counsel others on the perils of debt.

Applying the lessons we’ve learned over time provides a pathway for us to gain wisdom, but once again it requires humility. As Proverbs 9:10 sums it up, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.”
