21 Wisdom Bible Verses NKJV

Wisdom is a very important thing in life. We need wisdom to survive. Wisdom helps us gain insight and understanding. One thing I’ve noticed about the bible is that it covers everything in the world.

Whatever knowledge you need to live and survive in this world is in the bible and the bible also goes on to say that if we lack wisdom, we should ask God and he will give us.

This shows that when you lean on God, you will have the wisdom and knowledge you need to survive. See below for more wisdom bible verses.
