Proverbs 2:6 For the LORD gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding
It is the Lord who gives wisdom - wisdom flows from His mouth. We need to listen so that we can hear His knowledge and understanding. But, let's take this one step further. If knowledge and understanding come only from Him, then where do all the people who don't believe in Him get their words from? Two choices: either He give it to them anyway, in order to further His purposes for mankind (vaccines, medicines and so on are good example here) or what they say is not wisdom. That's a sobering thought. Next time you hear someone speaking what sounds like wisdom, check out whether they believe in God and if not, take what they say with a large pinch of salt, because it may very well not be wisdom and show no real knowledge or understanding.
