Wisdom is not just a set of abstract principles and metaphors. God's wisdom will lead you to do practical good for those around you. It will not only protect you and bless you, but it will also cause you to protect and bless others. As you humbly submit to God's word, God's word will work through you to express God's love, righteousness, justice, and equity (Proverbs 1:3) to your neighbor. You should never separate principle from action: they go hand-in-hand.
