Be endowed by God with wisdom

It is good to be endowed by God with wisdom and understanding.

He who attempts to serve the Lord without wisdom and understanding may in reality be doing more harm than good.

Brethren, would you like to fly on a plane with an on the job trainee at the controls without any backup instructor?

A zealous man who lacks wisdom can be dangerous especially in the ministry of Jesus Christ.

A wise man filled with love and abounding with zeal has the effect of uniting the brethren.

A zealous man of ignorance stirs up discord and division where there wasn't any.

A novice when placed in a high position in the church is lifted up with pride and ends up destroying the church and himself.

A man of wisdom seeks to be of some service to the body.
