A proverb a day: Proverbs 1:5 -Seek wisdom and gain reward.

“A wise [man] will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:” Proverbs 1:5 KJV

A person that is wise will continue to get more wisdom.  They understand that there is always something more they can learn.  They will seek out “wise counsels” as the scripture teaches, in teachers, books, etc.  A truly wise person will not let up until they attain all they can.  Now that I think about it, it will take a lifetime of learning and experiences and then we still won’t get it all.

But don’t fret, continue to seek.  Continue to press.  For even if we are just seeking we are blessed for the scripture teaches in Hebrews 11:6 “he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”  Do you want to be rewarded?  Well keep seeking!

Be wise.

    Hi Lance,

    Proverbs is one of my favorite books of the Bible and I think reading a proverb now and then and thinking about what it means for a while is a great way to gain real wisdom.

    Have a great day.
