Wisdom Bible Verses

wisdom from god quotes

Below are 33 powerful quotes from the mind of the early Christian theologian and philosopher Augustine of Hippo, also known as Saint Augustine, on topics such as love, beauty, god, sin, time, wisdom, hope, and patience.

1. “The world is a great book, of which they that never stir from home read only a page.”

2. “Beauty grows in you to the extent that love grows, because charity itself is the soul’s beauty.”

3. “Already I had learned from thee that because a thing is eloquently expressed it should not be taken to be as necessarily true; nor because it is uttered with stammering lips should it be supposed false.”

4. “Hear the other side.”

5. “People travel to wonder at the height of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars; and they pass by themselves without wondering.”

6. “Love, and do what you like.”

7. “God provides the wind, but man must raise the sails.”

8. “This is the very perfection of a man, to find out his own imperfections.”

9. “As the soul is the life of the body, so God is the life of the soul. As therefore the body perishes when the soul leaves it, so the soul dies when God departs from it.”

10. “What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.”

11. “The spiritual virtue of a sacrament is like light, — although it passes among the impure, it is not polluted.”

12. “It is no advantage to be near the light if the eyes are closed.”

13. “Wisdom and folly both are like meats that are wholesome and unwholesome, and courtly or simple words are like town-made or rustic vessels — both kinds of food may be served in either kind of dish.”

14. “It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels.”

15. “Love the sinner and hate the sin.”

16. “Miracles are not contrary to nature, but only contrary to what we know about nature.”

17. “You aspire to great things? Begin with little ones.”

18. “He that is jealous is not in love.”

19. “He who sings prays twice.”

20. “Renouncement: the heroism of mediocrity.”

21. “Anger is a weed; hate is the tree.”

22. “To wisdom belongs the intellectual apprehension of things eternal; to knowledge, the rational apprehension of things temporal.”

23. “For if a thing is not diminished by being shared with others, it is not rightly owned if it is only owned and not shared.”

24. “Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe.”

25. “The words printed here are concepts. You must go through the experiences.”

26. “Do you wish to rise? Begin by descending. You plan a tower that will pierce the clouds? Lay first the foundation of humility.”

27. “God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.”

28. “It is no advantage to be near the light if the eyes are closed.”

29. “Hope has two beautiful daughters. Their names are anger and courage; anger at the way things are, and courage to see that they do not remain the way they are.”

30. “Late have I loved you, O Beauty ever ancient and ever new! Late have I loved you! And, behold, you were within me, and I out of myself, and there I searched for you.”

31. “He who is filled with love is filled with God himself.”

QUESTION: Wisdom of God Quotes – What do theologians say?


"Since God is infinite and wise, He must be infinitely wise: This is called omnisapience. So as applied to God, wisdom refers to His unerring ability to choose the best means to accomplish the best ends. As such, God wisdom is written in several other attributes: His omniscience provides the knowledge for His wise choices; His omnibenevolence assures that they will be good choices; and His omnipotence enables Him to achieve His ends by the means He chooses." – Dr. Norman Geisler1

"Pray that, above all things, the gates of light may be opened to you; for these things cannot be perceived or understood by all, but only by the man to whom God and His Christ have imparted wisdom." – Justin Martyr2

"It is impossible for God to will anything but what His wisdom approves. That is, as it were, His law of justice, in accordance with which His will is right and just. Hence, what He does according to His will He does justly: as we do justly what we do according to law. But whereas law comes to us from some higher power, God is a law unto Himself. – Thomas Aquinas3

"God’s wisdom is seen in his works of creation, preservation and redemption: it is his choice of his own glory as his goal (Psalm 46:10; Isaiah 42:8; 48:11), and his decision to achieve it first by creating a marvelous variety of things and people (Psalm 104:24; Proverbs 3:19-20), second by kindly providences of all sorts (Psalm 145:13-16; Acts 14:17), and third by the redemptive “wisdom” of “Christ crucified” (1 Corinthians 1:18–2:16) and the resultant world church (Ephesians 3:10)." – J.I. Packer4

“In the Holy Scriptures wisdom, when used of God and good men, always carries a strong moral connotation. It is conceived as being pure, loving, and good...Wisdom, among other things, is the ability to devise perfect ends and to achieve those ends by the most perfect means. It sees the end from the beginning, so there can be no need to guess or conjecture. Wisdom sees everything in focus, each in proper relation to all, and is thus able to work toward predestined goals with flawless precision.”5

“Wisdom is the power to see, and the inclination to choose, the best and highest goal, together with the surest means of attaining it. Wisdom is, in fact, the practical side of moral goodness. As such, it is found in its fulness only in God. He alone is naturally and entirely and invariable wise.” J.I. Packer, Knowing God6

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

What is your response?

Yes, today I am deciding to follow Jesus

Yes, I am already a follower of Jesus

I still have questions
