wisdomLet the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance (Proverbs 1:5 ESV)

Think about a person you would consider wise. Does this person always give their opinion or advice on something? Do they talk too much? Probably not.

The wise person tends to not think of themselves as wise and daily learns from those around them. The wise are not puffed up with knowledge or the desire for those around them to glory in their wisdom. A wise person becomes 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. Then listen some more and some more. The wise don’t only learn from other wise, but from listening and learning from everyone they hear. Wisdom isn’t giving your opinion.  Wisdom is listening and waiting for the right time to speak.

Practice the art of Godly listening today.
