People admire intelligence

It gets us a head-start in life;

It gets us good jobs and high salary on us shower

It gets us status and power;

But intelligence is not wisdom!


Wisdom is doing the loving thing when in doubt,

It is being righteous, not self-righteous;

It is being considerate rather than rude,

It prefers to be kind rather than being vengeful;

Wisdom is mastering evil with good.


Being intelligent is inadequate without wisdom

Wisdom is the moral guide to self-control;

Pandering to self leads to pride

And self-indulgence;

Self knowledge, self control is the key to wisdom.


Wisdom comes from GOD

Ask HIM for wisdom to guide

All that we do;

It leads to living in peace

In harmony and social well-being.
