Is it easy for you to change your mind, or are you stubborn?
Proverbs 9:9. Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning.
Here Solomon is describing the opposite of the scoffer. The more you try to teach a scoffer the more foolish they become because they just reject everything you try to tell them. But the wise person is always get wiser and wiser.
There is no limit to God’s wisdom. You can’t become TOO wise, or too trusting of God, or too loving of others. Therefore, the wise person keeps on learning from their mistakes and the instruction of others. And they love it! They love learning not just facts about God, but about how to fear God and care about what he cares about. Jesus said something similar in Matthew 13:
Matthew 13:10-12. 10Then the disciples came and said to him, “Why do you speak to them in parables?” 11And he answered them, “To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. 12For to the one who has, more will be given, and he will have an abundance.
Wow! Jesus is telling us that we can know the secrets of the Kingdom of Heaven more and more. But what are the secrets of Heaven? The secrets of Heaven are all the wisdom of God that Jesus reveals. Like God loves us. God forgives us. God saves us. God wants us to live with him forever. We can love like he does. We can forgive like he does. The first will be last and the last will be first, so live for helping others. These are “Heaven’s Secrets” that the more we look at Jesus the more we will understand, and the wiser we will become.
Because of Jesus there is no end to knowing the wisdom of God.
With Jesus we know the wisdom and truth of God more and more each time we learn about him and his cross.
DO SOMETHING TOGETHER
Look at the end of your math book together. Where will the book take you? Is this the end of math? Math keeps going on and one and the more you understand math the more you can understand more math. That’s how Jesus is too. Infinite.
Jesus, I never want to stop learning about you, from you, with you, or through you. Keep teaching me the wisdom of God and his love and grace forever. Amen.
