I know that if I do not purpose to be wise I will make a foolish choice and have before. But in Proverbs 22: 17 is says, "Incline your ear and hear the words of the wise, and apply your heart to my knowledge." We have to listen to the wise and then apply your heart to knowledge. That can be difficult sometimes because we just don't want to take wisdom and we need to in order to get knowledge. I am purposing not to be so prideful when someone brings something to me. I hope this encourages you to do the same.
