Decisions! decisions! decisions!! Each move you make on a chess board is your road map to winning or losing the game. Life is no different. From the time you get up in the morning until the time you go to bed at night, every decision you make will determine how your day goes. Each day will determine how your week goes, each week will determine how your month goes and so forth and so on. If you are prone to making bad decisions, you will get bad results. If you are prone to making good or wise decisions, you should get good results.
Now let's look at it another way. You can only make decisions based on what you know. If you do not have the knowledge, and understanding, you will not be able to make the right application to win at the game of life or anything else. Knowledge is the information you need, understanding is the comprehension of that knowledge, and wisdom is the application of the knowledge that you have. Now these ingredients are very important to win the game.
Just like this young man on the chess board, he has to have knowledge of the game of chess to know how to play it, and understanding of the game to win at it, and every move that he makes will be the application of that knowledge and understanding to determine whether he will lose at the game of chess or whether he will win.
James 1:5 says, "If any of you lack wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you." Proverbs 2:6 says, For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding."
Wisdom is actually putting on our understanding to use it. When we understand something, it is often associated with our knowledge of the thing. As Proverbs 4:7 says, "The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom, though it cost all you have, get understanding." As you walk in the knowledge, the understanding, and the wisdom of God, you will be able to make wise decisions and you will always get good results. Selah!!!
