Reflective Thinking

To be wise it’s required that you don’t just listen but you also hear. Hearing has depth compared to just listening. Hearing has the heart involved. To be wise we are also required to be continual and life-long learners.

To be a person of understanding you’ll always be intentional about being around wise people and asking for their advice. It’s likely you’ll make a sacrifice and an investment of resources to be in a position to acquire wise counsel and the life skills to live out, teach, and lead others to a purpose driven life.

Action Idea

Get wisdom… and in all your getting… get understanding! To help you in this process, make investments into your growth by taking someone wise out to lunch and paying for their meal. Have at least a few questions written out to ask them.
