Wisdom: Why Study It?

Why study the wisdom of others?

· For learning wisdom and discipline; for understanding insightful sayings;

· for receiving prudent instruction in uprightness, justice, and integrity; 

· for teaching astuteness, knowledge and discretion to the inexperienced.

· For a wise person to be reminded and increase learning; 

· For a discerning person to obtain guidance for understanding of the words of the wise, and their riddles.
Desiring a healthy respect for God is the beginning of knowledge;  fools despise wisdom and discipline and seek the council of the like-minded.
Why study the wisdom of others?
To learn to not be foolish.  
Based on Proverbs, Chapter 1
