Do you value that person in your life who seems to know just the right thing to say or gives the right piece of advice at the right time?  Do you value that person who seems to have their life in order and responds to tricky circumstances in a way that always seems to work out?


Wisdom is not merely knowledge, and not merely knowledge of how to apply knowledge either.  


True wisdom requires spiritual "unction" to make that application happen.  This is why wisdom is a spiritual gift and a spiritual growth in every Christian (at least in some measure).


This is why we are to "get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding" (wisdom and understanding are parallel in this proverb)
