Proverbs (9)

Have you ever used the phrase, “Don’t waste your breath”? We may use that phrase to describe the situation when we share wisdom with another person but they refuse to pay attention to us.
Our Bible Reading clearly shows us that there are two kinds of people: foolish people who do not pay attention to good words and warnings, and wise people who pay attention to those things. “Teach the wise, and they will become wiser. Instruct those who live right, and they will gain more knowledge” (verse 9).
If we want to be wise, we must do two things. First, we must think carefully before sharing wisdom. If we know someone who is foolish and doesn’t follow God, they will probably not pay attention to us. And they might become angry with us. Second, we must also pay attention when others share wisdom with us.
Accept correction and wise teaching. Then that wisdom will make you a stronger Christian. I hope you will be wise today.
