Forbes magazine contributor David DiSalvo grew up in an extended family of people who didn’t go to college because they had to go to work instead. Despite their lack of schooling, however, they were “steeped in wisdom.” DiSalvo shared several of the lessons he learned:
▪ You can learn something useful from anyone. “Whenever we find ourselves ignoring someone because we’ve already determined that they aren’t ‘smart’ enough to say something meaningful, we’ve made a big mistake…I’ve yet to meet someone who couldn’t teach me something.”
▪ Learning is good; Doing is better. “You can learn a lot about car engines, but until you get under the hood and work on one, you can’t see how remarkable an invention these machines are.”
Apply your ear to words of knowledge. (Proverbs 23:12)
Open my ears to the wisdom around me, Savior.
