Wisdom can be found if we will open our minds. So many just don’t look for wisdom in the at all. Read carefully Proverbs 1:20-33. The question arises “Why do you love being uninformed?” Wisdom and learning are available to any who will tune their minds to reason. It seems to be the case that people would rather remain ignorant and continue to make the same silly and stupid decisions which leads to worse and worse conditions in their lives.
There are really only three types of people, the simple, the fool and the wise. Simple people are those who have never been exposed to knowledge. The fool is the one who hears truth and rejects it. The wise person listens and applies the truth he has learned. A person cannot remain simple after he hears the truth. He will either become wise and abide by it or ignore it and become a fool.
There is grave the danger of rejecting wisdom. We bring calamity upon ourselves. Scoffers who love to scoff and fools who hate knowledge bring reproof and judgment upon themselves. Wisdom mocks that person, because they bring much more harm to themselves than is necessary.
There comes a point where we can become so foolish that wisdom is impossible to attain.
“Then they will call upon me, but I will not answer; they will seek me diligently but will not find me. 29 Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the LORD,” (Proverbs 1:28–29)
Seems we should heed the words of the apostle Paul
“Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is” (Ephesians 5:17).
Jesus commanded us to know the truth in order to be set free (John 8:32). There is only one source by which we can learn the truth and that is the Word of God (John 17:17). Let us take every opportunity to come to know the truth better and apply our hearts to wisdom
“Apply your heart to instruction and your ear to words of knowledge” (Proverbs 23:12).
“making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding; 3 yes, if you call out for insight and raise your voice for understanding, 4 if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures, 5 then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God. 6 For the LORD gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding” (Proverbs 2:2–6)
