Developing Wisdom

TUESDAY

If a wise man is engaged in an internal war with pride, he must also be developing humility. Proverbs has much to say about developing this valuable quality in your life based on seeking and accepting counsel from others.

A wise man heeds instructions:

NAU Proverbs 1:5 A wise man will hear and increase in learning, And a man of understanding will acquire wise counsel,

NAU Proverbs 8:33 “Heed instruction and be wise, And do not neglect it.

NIV Proverbs 21:11 When a mocker is punished, the simple gain wisdom; when a wise man is instructed, he gets knowledge.

A wise man accepts reproof (being rebuked when at fault):

NIV Proverbs 9:8 Do not rebuke a mocker or he will hate you; rebuke a wise man and he will love you.

NIV Proverbs 10:8 The wise in heart accept commands, but a chattering fool comes to ruin.

A wise man seeks advice from other wise men:

NIV Proverbs 12:15 The way of a fool seems right to him, but a wise man listens to advice.

NIV Proverbs 18:15 The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge; the ears of the wise seek it out.
