How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver! ~ Proverbs 16:16 KJV
Wisdom in the Bible is very valuable. But how is wisdom achieved?

I see several ways in the Bible how wisdom can be gotten. So let's take a look at 4.

#1. Through the Bible

...the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. ~Psalm 19:7 KJV
Being in God's Word gives wisdom to those who are in need of it.

#2. Through Wise Friends

He that walketh with wise men shall be wise. ~Proverbs 13:20 KJV
 Friends can point you toward God and His Word and have an influence on you for good if you choose the right ones.

#3. Through the Fear of the Lord

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. ~Psalm 111:10 KJV
The fear of the Lord is a springboard for so many other blessings.

#4. Through Asking

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. ~James 1:5 KJV
God delights to give us what we ask for when it's in accordance with His will.
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. ~Matthew 7:7 KJV
God wants us to be wise in His Word.
...be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. ~Matthew 10:16 KJV
