Wise

“Let the wise also hear and gain in learning, and the discerning acquire skill.” Proverbs 1: 5 nrsv

How do you become wise?

What’s the formula?

The secret isn’t intelligence. We’ve all known people with high IQ’s who do dumb things.

It isn’t education. The persons who were responsible for the Enron scandal had MBAs from the most prestigious graduate schools.

It isn’t connections with the largest contact list.

The key is humility.

It’s easier to teach a teachable person.

It is the person who listens, reflect, absorbs, and internalizes both facts and their right place in life who are wise!

Persons who already thinks they know it all don’t have any room in their heart or mind for new ideas.

An old adage from a source I’ve yet to find proclaims “You two two ears and one mouth. Use them in that order.”
