Huh, Are there Characteristics of Real Wisdom that Leads to valuable Fruit.. verses Worldly Wisdom that just Stays Barren?

Sure there are. The Real kind is Pure, Peaceable, Gentle, Reasonable, Merciful and comes with Good rather than Smelly Rotting kind of Fruit.  It’s Unwavering and Non-Hypocritical.

I say.. Wisdom never asks us to strive or be uber-busy. It expects us to be and even instructs us to be fruitful in the Lord

What’s wise? “Think truly, and thy thoughts shall the world’s famine feed. Speak truly, and each word of thine shall be a FRUITFUL SEED. Live truly, and thy life shall be a great and noble creed.” ~ Horatius Bonar

Here’s what you do: Live well, live wisely, live humbly. It’s the way you live, not the way you talk, that counts. Mean-spirited ambition isn’t wisdom. Boasting that you are wise isn’t wisdom. Twisting the truth to make yourselves sound wise isn’t wisdom. It’s the furthest thing from wisdom—it’s animal cunning, devilish conniving. Whenever you’re trying to look better than others or get the better of others, things fall apart and everyone ends up at the others’ throats. 
Real wisdom, God’s wisdom, begins with a holy life and is characterized by getting along with others. It is gentle and reasonable, overflowing with mercy and blessings, not hot one day and cold the next, not two-faced. You can develop a healthy, robust community that lives right with God and enjoy its results only if you do the hard work of getting along with each other, treating each other with dignity and honor.
