1). Describe the two kinds of wisdom.
James 3:13-17; Is there some wise and understanding man among you? Then let his life be a shining example of the humility that is born of true wisdom. But if your heart is full of bitter jealousy and rivalry, then do not boast and do not deny the truth. You may acquire a certain wisdom, but it does not come from above--it comes from this world, from your own lower nature, even from the devil. For wherever you find jealousy and rivalry you also find disharmony and all other kinds of evil. The wisdom that comes from above is first pure, then peace-loving, gentle, approachable, full of merciful thoughts and kindly actions, straightforward, with no hint of hypocrisy.
2). After you have studied, please give how we can acquire godly wisdom.
James 1:5 tells us to ask God for wisdom. This is the godly wisdom we need to live by. " If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him." It takes time and effort to become truly wise because it comes as a result of learning from the decisions we make. We must seek it, meditate on God's Word, obey the Scriptural principles, pray for it, observe how God works in the world, heed godly counsel, and associate with the wise.

4). Wisdom is a precious____________.
Wisdom is a precious treasure that everyone should seek after with greater zeal.

7). Once we've asked for wisdom with a pure heart, how do we keep that wisdom?
We must abide in Jesus in order to keep this wisdom, and stay in the Word of God.
