Book of Proverbs

Proverbs 1:4-7

“for giving prudence to the simple,
knowledge and discretion to the young-
let the wise listen and add to their learning,
and let the discerning get guidance-
for understanding proverbs and parables,
the sayings and riddles of the wise.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge,
but fools despise wisdom and discipline.”

God is pleased with those who seek knowledge, but this isn’t referring to knowledge of science or philosophy, but growing in knowledge of God, through His word. The more we know God, the more we can fear Him, but more importantly, understand Him so that we can live a life according to His will and purpose. It doesn’t matter how wise one thinks that they are, for this proverb is stating that even the wise should add to their learning. Let’s pray and think, how can I change my heart to seek the opportunities of growing in wisdom? Be more open to discipline and chances to deepen my humility?
