Wisdom teaches us how to respond well to difficult situations, whether they be a trial, test or temptation. We will respond to situations and to God out of either wisdom or foolishness. When things are difficult it is easy to assert our desire and respond in anger, but that will not get us to our goal of wisdom and holiness. And we all struggle with pride that seeks to pollute our soul and resist the way of wisdom. When facing challenges, wisdom seeks to first and foremost listen to God and then do or obey and follow his ways.
