A life that is wise is spared much heartache and pain. A wise young lady does not have to learn from hindsight, which are her mistakes, but she has the foresight to avoid the pain that comes from mistakes. People are not better people because of the mistakes that they made but they are better people because of the knowledge that they learned from their mistakes. How much better it is to learn the knowledge beforehand so that we do not have the baggage of painful and broken relationships or habits and patterns that are difficult to change. Wisdom is having the knowledge to get the desired result. Prudence is the wisdom of how to avoid undesirable results. Wisdom and prudence go hand and hand.
Proverbs 16:16 How much better it is to get wisdom than gold!
Proverbs 8:12 I, wisdom, dwell with prudence.
No amount of money can heal a broken heart. Wisdom keeps a life of regrets from characterizing your life.
