The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel:
“To know wisdom and instruction, to perceive the words of understanding, to receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, judgment, and equity; to give prudence to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion—A wise man will hear and increase learning, And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel, to understand a proverb and an enigma, the words of the wise and their riddles. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” Proverbs 1:1-7 (NKJV)
Proverbs warns that it is a fool who despises wisdom and instruction. The book of Proverbs is all about sharing insights with the young and old so that they can grow in knowledge and understanding. It is the fear of God, or holy reverent fear of respect and awe, that starts a believer out on his acquisition of wisdom and knowledge. I pray you search out the Proverbs yourself, words so wisely stated by Solomon. May you gain much understanding through your quest to better know your God.
