"And he said to the human race,
'The fear of the Lord—that is wisdom,
and to shun evil is understanding.' "
Wisdom and understanding would have us reconciled to God. Any thought that does not produce this yield, no matter how many may entertain it, is not wisdom. If you are imperfect, it is wise to align yourself with that which is perfect. This is simple logic. If something is causing you harm or detriment, an understanding mind would have you abandon it. This is logical understanding, wisdom that would turn us away from sin and reconcile us to God.
