Wisdom, from a biblical understanding, is not merely the accumulation of information, although that is (often) important. A wise person understands the meaning and significance of that information, sees how it fits together and applies to the whole of life, and has the cultivated character and developed skills to live it out consistently. Wisdom integrates mind, faith and character; a life of wisdom is a sane, flourishing life in each of these respects.
