What is wisdom? Can you know wisdom when you see it? Listen to what Moses said to Israel and you will see the answers to those questions:

“Surely I have taught you statutes and judgments, just as the LORD my God commanded me, that you should act according to them in the land which you go to possess. Therefore be careful to observe them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the peoples who will hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people” (Deuteronomy 4.5–6).

Following the teachings and commands of the Lord makes us a great, wise, and understanding people, because He created us and the world, and He knows how we operate in it best.
