Many of the wise sayings Solomon wrote in Proverbs are written to his children. He wanted his sons and daughters to listen to his words and to hear his instruction (Proverbs 1:8). When we listen to the wisdom that comes from God through the Bible, we will hear excellent, right, and true things (Proverbs 8:1–11). God’s wisdom is pure, peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without hypocrisy or partiality (James 3:17) because God is all of those things!
We need to be careful to compare whatever we hear from books, movies, and friends with the true wisdom in the Bible so that we aren’t listening to and believing foolish fables—things that aren’t true (2 Timothy 4:1–4).
God created our ears in an amazing way so that we can listen up to Him (Proverbs 20:12)!
