The first wisdom an individual can have is to seek the Lord and His salvation. Thereafter the wisest thing he can do is to seek the wisdom of The Wisest Being in existence, the Lord. The oftener he does that the better off he will be. Wisdom knows where to get wisdom. For believers, God*s wisest of wisdom is available for the asking.
James 1:1, 5: James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting. 5 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.
That promise was given only to believers. The book of James was written to Israelite believers who were scattered abroad because they were persecuted in Jerusalem.
