Colossians 2:3:  “In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” 

All wisdom, all knowledge is innot from, — Jesus. Whoever desires wisdom to navigate through this crazy life successfully must come to the realization that there is nothing more, nothing less, nothing else than Jesus. All treasures of wisdom are in Him. William Randolph Hearst, the billionaire publisher, became rather eccentric in his later years. One day, looking through a book of famous artwork, a painting caught his eye. ‘I want this painting for my collection,’ he said to his aides. But after making some inquiries, his aides reported that they were unable to locate the particular work. Hearst barks: ‘If you value your jobs, do whatever it takes to find that treasure, and secure it for me immediately.’  Three and a half months later, the aides returned to Hearst. He asked: ‘Did you find the treasure?’  ‘Yes,’ they replied. ‘After much searching and painstaking research, we found it.’ He asked: ‘Did you purchase it?’ ‘No.’ ‘Why not?’ Hearst demanded. ‘Because we found it in your warehouse.’  Well what Paul is saying to the Colossians is: ‘You already have all the wisdom and knowledge you will ever need to get through life successfully. It’s all in Christ.” When we have Him, we have it all.
