Proverbs 19:20

“Listen to advice and accept instruction,

    that you may gain wisdom in the future.”

Proverbs 19:20 ESV

The most basic point of this proverb may slip past the reader. To wit, wisdom comes as a result of a willingness to listen to advice and accept instruction.

If others regularly tell you, “You won’t listen to anybody,” then you are not on a path toward wisdom. There is more in this proverb, but spending time thinking on this obvious point is worthwhile.

Lord, help me to be willing to receive instruction and advice from others.
