Influencing culture for the Kingdom

Proverbs 26:12 NASB

“Do you see a man wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him.” Proverbs 26:12 NASB

I use to say that the wisest people I ever knew or currently know never talk as though they are aware of being wise. Part of what I’ve learned about their wisdom is that they don’t have time to foolishly ponder their own greatness or dwell on their level of wisdom. As a matter of fact, most of these wise people simply remain curious learners. To watch and listen to them in normal conversation, you may miss their brilliance because they are constantly asking probing and intelligent questions, listening well. As they live life this way, it is no wonder they have become deep sources of wisdom. Because of their level of listening it can be easy to miss the wisdom they have to offer, but it is precisely their ability to ask insightful, genuine questions with passion that makes them so wise. Jesus, on the road to Emmaus, asked very pointed questions that caused a hunger, and eventually recognition by those He was traveling with. Ultimately, they listened to His answers and more as He revealed deep truths about His story with them. Today, as you search for wise counsel, watch for the listeners. #BeTheEdge
