The first thing is cultivate a love of learning. To be wise, means we need to grow. It isn’t something we are naturally born with. We must have a passion for learning.
Learning isn’t easy. It requires work. It requires a real discipline to do it even when we don’t want to or feel like it.
When we fall short, we must submit to God’s discipline and receive correction. We must be open to hearing we weren’t correct in our thinking.
If you love learning, you love the discipline that goes with it. How shortsighted to refuse correction! ~King Solomon (Proverbs 12:1)
