O Be Wise

A short and simple verse from the Book of Mormon reads, "O be wise; what can I say more?" -Jacob 6:12

So what is wisdom?

According to the dictionary on my desk it means knowledge of what is true or right coupled with good judgement.

I find that very interesting. If we want to heed Jacob's counsel and be wise we must first gain knowledge. This knowledge comes from things like going to church, reading our scriptures, and other things. But it doesn't end there. We have to correctly apply the things we learned or else we might become the opposite of wise and that's foolish. None of us want that now, do we??

So all I can say is, "Be wise."
