The Wise Get Wiser

Proverbs 9:9  

Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.

If you think you know it all, you won’t have any incentive to learn more. If you think you are right, you have no reason to change. But the truly wise person recognizes how much he has to learn and realizes how much room for improvement he has. True godly wisdom is not proud, but humble and teachable.

The wise also have developed listening and learning skills that make growing in knowledge easier.
