What does the Bible say about Spiritual growth?


I have wisdom because Jesus Christ was made wisdom for me.

But through him you are in Christ Jesus, who was made by God for wisdom and righteousness and for sanctification and salvation.
1 Corinthians 1,30

Wisdom sprouts from the mouth of the righteous; but the wrong tongue is eradicated.
Proverbs 10,31

But if there is a lack of wisdom among you, ask God who likes to give everyone and does not scold anyone; so it will be given to him.
James 1,5

Therefore, whoever hears and does this my speech is like a clever man who built his house on rock.
Matthew 7,24

For the Lord gives wisdom, and out of his mouth comes knowledge and insight.
Proverbs 2,6

Teach us to remember that we have to die so that we can become clever.
Psalm 90,12

Whoever has a brave heart knows how to hold himself in suffering; if courage is lost, who can bear it?
Proverbs 18,14

The lot settles the dispute and does not allow the powerful to clash.
Proverbs 18,18

Death and life are in the mouth of violence; whoever loves them will eat their fruit.
Proverbs 18,21

But what we are talking about is wisdom among the perfect; not a wisdom of this world, not even the rulers of this world, who perish. We are talking about the wisdom of God, which is hidden in the mystery, which God predestined for our glory, which none of the rulers of this world recognized; for if they had recognized them, they would not have crucified the Lord of Glory. Rather, as it is written (Isaiah 64: 3), it came: "What no eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no man's heart has what God has prepared for those who love him." But God has us revealed through his spirit; for the mind explores all things, including the depths of the deity. For who knows what is in man as the only spirit of the man who is in him? So nobody knows what is in God but the Spirit of God alone. But we have not received the spirit of the world, but the spirit from God that we can know what God has given us. And we do not speak of it in words as it can teach human wisdom, but in words that the spirit teaches, and we interpret spiritual things for spiritual people. But natural man hears nothing of the Spirit of God; it is foolishness and he cannot recognize it; because it has to be judged spiritually. The spiritual man judges everything and yet is judged by nobody. For "who has recognized the Lord's meaning or who wants to instruct him"? (Isaiah 40:13) But we have Christ's mind.
1 Corinthians 2,6-16

And I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom and understanding and knowledge and with all skill.
Exodus 31,3

Spiritual Control

Because those who are carnal are carnal-minded; but those who are spiritual are spiritually minded. But being carnal minded is death, and being spiritually minded is life and peace.
Romans 8,5-6

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit that is within you and that you have from God and that you do not belong to yourself? Because you are dearly bought; therefore God praises with your body.
1 Corinthians 6,19-20

It is the spirit that gives life; the meat is of no use. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life.
