Lessons from the Wise
Let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance (Proverbs 1:5).
Think about a person you would consider wise. Does this person always give his opinion or advice on something? Do she talk too much? Probably not.
Wise people seldom view themselves as wise. Instead, they learn from the people around them each day. The wise are not puffed up with knowledge. They’re not obsessed to get glory for their wisdom.
Wise people become wise by hearing. They listen more than they talk.
We can all learn from the wise. If you feel like you are lacking in wisdom, then listen to other godly men or women. (Or better yet, pray to gain wisdom by listening to God Himself (James 1:5)!
Then listen some more and some more.
The wise don’t only learn from other wise individuals, but from listening and learning from everyone they hear. Wisdom isn’t first shown in giving your opinion. Wisdom is listening and waiting for the right time to speak.
