Leave your simple ways and you will live; walk in the way of understanding. Proverbs 9:6
Do people not walk in the way of understanding intentionally? Apparently we do, otherwise the verse would have no value. One of the ways to become wiser is to “hang” with those who are wise. What could you do differently this week to be with those who are wiser than we are? Perhaps you can take some time to read through the Book of Proverbs in one sitting.
Make it a habit of doing one thing daily to increase your wisdom. It could be praying for wisdom or being with the wise or reading just a little more in the Bible. But don’t discount the notion of seeking out those who are wise in your line of work even if they don’t have the same belief system as you do. You will be sharpened in your business skills and learn a bit more about how the “world” thinks. In this way we can be wise as serpents and harmless as doves (Matthew 10:16).
