What is the difference between knowledge and wisdom?

    Often times, we think of these as the same, but they are not.  As Fr. Simon on Relevant Radio says, “Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit.  Wisdom is knowing not to put it in the fruit salad.”  In short, knowledge is knowing the facts and wisdom is knowing how to put the facts into use.
    So, we know that Jesus is God, came down to be one of us, suffered and died for us, and rose from the dead, but what do we do with this knowledge?  This is at the heart of the Christian life.  It must affect us every day, every hour, and every moment.  God loved us so much to do all these things, so what are we going to do?
    If we are unsure about what we should do with this knowledge, we need to only pray.  It works amazingly.  Right now, take a moment to ask God what He wants you to do today  …  Now, do it!
