“Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts…” (Isa 6:3)
(6) Godly Wisdom Is Without Partiality, A person who is impartial is equally fair to all people. He doesn’t use his position to take advantage of people, even when it is his “right” to do so. One of the chief features in the life of Solomon, who asked God for wisdom and received it in full measure, was that he could judge fairly. He exemplifies the need to listen to all sides of the question and to judge equitably without prejudice. Part of that responsibility for the Christian in cases of accusation or implication is to judge according to the Bible’s standards and procedures. Rather than trusting in our own fallible discernment, we should be careful to require the verification of two or three reliable eye witnesses, and thus short –circuit the potential chaos that can easily be wrought by gossip and false accusations
(7) Godly Wisdom Is Without Hypocrisy. No one likes a phony, yet any of us can fall into the folly of the double standard if we are not careful. The lack of integrity we can observe today in Christians- even Christian leaders- is alarming. We should be straightforward, saying what we believe and living what we say.
Throughout the book of Proverbs, one of the most visible characteristics of the person who is wise and deserving is consistency. There’s no doubt – mindedness, no hypocrisy, no vacillation in the life of the godly wise. (Kenneth M. Durham)
