Wisdom is the insight into the true nature of things. Knowledge is the mental possession of powers of perceiving objects, wisdom is the power of right reasoning concerning them and forming right decisions accordingly.

(see Pr ) Providence is God's ordering all outcomes and events of things, after the counsel of his will, to his own glory. [1] I call providence—God's ordering things, to distinguish it from.
