Wisdom Does Not Come Overnight

If we listen to the wisdom of proverbs, we start to think that it is a good idea to seek wisdom. But how do I do that? How can I make better decisions? How can I choose a good life?

This proverb tells us that it takes time to become wiser. This is because we need to practice. And we practice through thinking – thinking about what to do, and when something goes wrong, about why it went wrong and how it could have been avoided. Because wisdom takes time and practice, old people are often thought very wise – but this is only true if they have spent their years trying to think and learn.
