“The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.”
What’s Good for You
I’ve heard this preface to warnings all my life: “If you know what’s good for you, you will…” For example,
If you know what’s good for you, you will…
- pay attention
- look before you cross the street
- blow on that before you take a sip
- learn to say no
- think twice before you say, “I do”
- put that back and buy a cheaper one
- stay in school
Solomon was simply saying, “If you know what’s good for you, you will seek and get knowledge.”
Never Stop Learning
The older I get, and the more I study, the more I realize that there is so much I don’t know. I have more knowledge than I used to, but I am always learning.
The prudent man and the wise man know that it never hurts to “learn all you can and can what you get.” The knowledge you acquire may not seem useful today, but only God knows the future.
