(Proverbs 3:13 KJV) Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.
Knowledge is a good thing. It is used forty times in Proverbs. Accurate information and a good reference library or data base are important. But here it is talking about “understanding” (8394). What is the difference? A computer can have knowledge but at this point, no real understanding. You might have flawless spelling but not know what the words mean.
Of course the goal is wisdom. Wisdom is more illusive but requires accurate information and the mental acuity to understand what you know.
So? Keep seeking the information you need but never forget that it requires the help of the Holy
Spirit to make the information yield wisdom.
