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
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
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
