Wisdom is better than strength, but so many rely on themselves without ever seeking the Truth and gaining any wisdom. Knowledge is power and the more we know, the better we can apply it to our lives.
A common mistake in Bible reading is taking a verse out of context to justify wrong thinking. We see this often in media interviews so that what they report is far from what was truly said.
'I do not put my trust in the wisdom of man'...including myself.....'but in the power of God.'
