Translating information into knowledge and knowledge into wisdom by testing it through real-world experience.
The encouraging news is, as we get older, we learn to accept the successes and disappointments in a less critical way. We begin to let our age and wisdom empower us to keep pushing through whatever life throws at us. Like the statement we say at our church says:...
You might think you are different because you participate in rituals that are said to be associated with being a Christian. Your difference must be transformative, beyond works. There is no trying to be righteous, or trying to do what is right.
The prerequisite to wisdom is lacking for many due to their attempts to be perceived as competent and bolstered by their fear of failure. In order to impact your perception, you must be willing to look stupid.
