“A wise man will hear and increase learning, and a man of understanding will attain wise counsel…” (Pro. 1:5).
Hearing and Seeking
It is easy to listen, or more accurately, it is easy to listen to yourself. A wise man will hear others thought. His growth does not stagnate. He is constantly learning. He attains wise counsel. It takes true humility to do that. Be humble. Be swift to hear. Be open to the wisdom that is from above. There is nothing wrong with needing help to understand it. It is a sign of wisdom, and it has the promise of more wisdom being given.
