Wisdom: the forgotten context

In high school and college I was really big on seeking wisdom. I figured the facts and stuff would follow. Somewhere along the line, I forgot all that and became content with whatever wisdom I already had. I also forgot the source of the wisdom that had served me so well in the past.

I was reading through Proverbs last week and came across what was a favorite verse of mine. Proverbs 24:3-4 says,
By wisdom a house is built,
And by understanding it is established;
And by knowledge the rooms are filled
With all precious and pleasant riches.

Ya, I learned a lot of facts over the years, but without the context of wisdom those facts are not put to good use. Here's to a renewed goal of seeking wisdom, the context for knowledge.
