For there are two types of wisdom, one from above, one of the earth.
The wisdom from above is from the father and is first pure and fruitful and full of mercy without partiality
The wisdom of the earth is full greed and envy, strife self love and evil works.
So as we live in this world we chose the wisdom we want to have, good or bad it makes us who we are.
A man of God shows a light of love and understanding, a man of the world sees no love and has no true understanding.
