True wisdom comes through application not theory. Knowledge is theory. Application is applied knowledge or theory to your life. You have lived through it. Once you have lived through it; you now carry wisdom around it. So pay attention to what you are being taught from day to day by the Holy Spirit.
This is a little song I made up from a song in the movie Sister Act II.
“If you want to be somebody,
you want to go somewhere;
you better wake up and pay attention.
If you want to get to heaven and
you want to see God’s face
you better wake up and pay attention.”
There is a master plan God has for you that no man can stop; but you. Choose well for yourself, apply knowledge and pay attention to life.
