Why is godly wisdom so valuable? It delivers its owners from bad ways and preserves them alive. It has a positive effect on their disposition, speech, and actions.

Wisdom protects from pride

16:18, 19

  • A wise person recognizes that Jehovah is the Source of all wisdom

  • Those who achieve success or who receive more responsibility must especially guard against pride and haughtiness

Wisdom promotes wholesome speech

16:21-24

  • A wise person uses insight to find the good in others and speaks well of them

  • Wise words are persuasive and sweet like honey, not harsh or confrontational
