Proverbs is the best source for understanding wisdom and discipline. Even a simple-minded man can know these basic truths. Do we sometimes believe ourselves so arrogant that we are above learning these basics? Reading chapter one, verse seven says it all, doesn’t it?
“Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true knowledge, but. fools despise wisdom and discipline.” Proverbs 1:7 NLT
