Proverbs 18:15


The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.



Some men have both a heart and ear for knowledge, but they are very rare. They are the great and noble men of the earth. Most men have neither a heart nor ear for knowledge. They have no craving for it, and they do not like the work of listening to acquire it. They are fools, and they are easily identified by their disregard for instruction and learning.

Rather than being overly self-assured, the prudently wise person seeks out more “knowledge.” He is more impressed with what he does not know than with what he does know. Ezra was such a person, and he looked in the right place for knowledge: the law of the Lord.
