    Wisdom is the ability to do good with intelligence.

    I guess if you google all three and then compare their differences, you may come to a conclusion.

    They all kinda mean the same thing, but I’ve always seen all those words in different ways. 

    Wisdom, to me, makes me think of an old person who has lived a long life, gained lots of experience and life lessons resulting in his being wise. Able to help people with life issues.

    Intelligence to me, sounds like someone who is good at solving problems with creative solutions. Someone who thinks outside the box and contributes lots of ideas to the world.

    And just “being smart” could apply to intelligence also. Just a downgraded way of wording it. It seems to sound like this person does well in school and gets good grades.
