"Pay attention to wisdom with your ear, that you may incline your heart to discernment."—Prov. 2:2. ??????? "By making your ear attentive to wisdom, And inclining your heart to discernment." Prov. 2:2Â At the start of SolomonÂ’s kingship, God appeared to him in a dream and invited him to make a request. Aware of his limited experience, Solomon requested wisdom. (1 Ki. 3:5-9)Â Pleased that the king asked for wisdom rather than for riches and glory, God gave Solomon Â“a wise and understanding heartÂ”Â—as well as prosperity. (1 Ki. 3:10-14)Â We personally do not expect to receive wisdom miraculously. Solomon said that Â“Jehovah himself gives wisdom,Â” but he wrote that we should strive to gain that godly quality. He used expressions such as Â“call out for,Â” Â“keep seeking for,Â” and Â“keep searching forÂ” wisdom. (Prov. 2:1-6)Â Clearly, we can gain wisdom. It would be good to ask: Â‘Am I taking to heart SolomonÂ’s example of treasuring divine wisdom? Do the choices I make indicate that I am treasuring and seeking divine wisdom?Â’Â ??????? https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/402013366?q=prov+2%3A2&p=par
