A common mistake that some Christians fall into is to prioritize growing in the 'knowledge' of the Bible – centralized to 'know' things.
By omitting prioritizing learning the understanding of the wisdom to love with said knowledge can yield the development of the practice of Gnosticism.
Gnosticism is a pride driven evil of some Christians since the first century. The self-driven theory behind this outlook can become a very subconscious action which can lead to being subtly living within an oppressed state from the devil.
Wisdom is 'how' God does everything, and love is 'why' God does everything. Throughout Scripture, as priority, God guides a Christian to grow in an 'understanding' of the 'wisdom' to 'love' with all things. This includes and is foremost in using the Word of God, which is the Spirit of God, one and the same.
The Word specifically states that someone knows 'nothing' even if they have the knowledge of the entire Bible, and are not seeking the understanding of the wisdom to love with it. Read - 1st Corinthians 8:1-3
The world would be without any conflict of wars, divorces, crime, denominational and other Christian division, or any conflict - if all Christians followed the highest commandments to love as God loves, and the primary specific of them.
Jesus is the Spirit of love, humility, and truth...thank God for Jesus our Savior.
Jesus said in John 15:12 This is my commandment, that ye love one another as I have loved you.
Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
