Wisdom

In Piper's sermon, "The Mind of Christ: Looking Out for the Interests of Others" he defines wisdom as:
The ability of the soul to perceive God-glorifying, Christ-exalting, gospel-fashioned, people-helping ways to live, with the knowledge God gives us. Wisdom is not the ability to memorize specific biblical rules of behavior. Wisdom is needed because so many of our decisions are not explicitly regulated by specific rules in the Bible.
Watch, read or listen to Piper's sermon on here. What he says is indeed beautiful.
