It’s good to read the Proverbs of Solomon. First, because they are God-inspired. Second, because Solomon was the wisest man in history; therefore we should pay close attention to what he says. In Proverbs 1, Solomon appropriately sets the stage with a vital truth in this introduction: “A wise man will hear and increase learning…but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”(verses 5 and 7)
As we journey through the book of Proverbs, let’s not be that un-teachable, foolish know-it-all. Let’s be willing to listen to what God wants to teach us so He can shape our thinking – and our lives. Let’s let Him make us wise!
Prayer: Lord, Open our ears and hearts to willingly hear Your teaching, and shape our lives with what we learn. Amen!
