Listening is the key Ingredient of Knowledge



Happy Monday Saints.

Foolish people stop learning. They think that they know all there is to know and that they don’t need to change or improve. As a result, they are not very good listeners. And listening is a key ingredient to learning.

Proverbs 18:15 says that “THE EAR OF THE WISE SEEKS KNOWLEDGE.”

Truly wise people know that there is no limit to what they can learn. They also know that no matter how much knowledge they have, there is ALWAYS room for improvement and growth.

If you want to grow, you have to be willing to be corrected. And to be corrected, you have to be humble.

It takes humility to listen, learn, and grow. And then it takes even more humility not to be puffed up with pride because of your knowledge, and still remain teachable. The wise know that they can and should, always “ADD TO THEIR LEARNING.”

Regardless of your age, education, qualifications, skills, and experience – ARE YOU STILL ADDING TO YOUR LEARNING?

If THE EAR OF THE WISE SEEKS KNOWLEDGE, then the ear of the foolish stops listening and learning.

No matter how much you think you know, or how wise you think you are; there is no excuse for not wanting to ADD TO YOUR LEARNING.

There is only One Omniscient One and it’s definitely not you and me.

Be wise. Seek knowledge. Add to your learning and increase your capacity to be more and do more.

Have an awesome week. God bless and lots’a love,
