The mouth of the righteous
utters wisdom,

    and his tongue speaks justice.

The law of his God is in his heart;
    his steps do not slip.


Psalm 37:30-31 ESV

Wisdom and Justice Go Hand in Hand

A righteous person (one who is acting in accordance with God) speaks words of wisdom and justice.  You cannot have justice without wisdom, nor can you have wisdom without justice.  True justice is God's justice. It takes wisdom to discern and understand this.  Likewise, if you cannot see true wisdom, which also comes from God, then you are unable to enact true justice.  These two things go together.

How do you get this kind of wisdom and justice?  It tells us in the second verse.  The law of God is in the person's heart.  In other words, a person who knows God's word and is trying to be in God's will, will be given a mouth that utters wisdom and a tongue that speaks justice.  Without the word of God in your heart, you cannot have this wisdom and justice.  If you do have it in your heart, when you take steps, they will be in accordance with God.  After all, if you are following God's word, then you are in God's will.

If you want to take it further, you can do a Words of Wisdom journal.  Simply make categories (you can add a category whenever you want) and put the Bible verses into the appropriate categories.  For instance, one category might be "Money."  Every time a verse has to do with money, you write it under the category.  As time goes on, you will have a journal of wisdom from the Bible organized in an easy to find way.
