Being SMART does not mean you’re WISE. We can go through life learning all sorts of facts. We can learn all kinds of lessons. We can gather all manner of experiences. But that does not make us WISE, that just makes us SMART.
WISDOM comes when we take all that knowledge that we have accumulated, all those lessons we have learned and APPLY it to our lives.
Learning makes you SMART. Applying what you have learned to your life makes you WISE.
