Hebrews 5:13-14 For everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to the word of righteousness, for he is an infant. But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil.
A person can grow in wisdom, but they have to work at it diligently, seek it diligently, and be a learner. There are at least seven different ways to grow in wisdom, and the most important is to read, study, and memorize the Bible. The Bible is the mind of Christ, the words of God, and divine principles for success. The more of God’s Word that has filled our mind and heart the more wisdom we will have.
The passage above says, ”accustomed to the word of righteousness.” ”Accustomed to” obviously means that we read it a lot, it isn’t a periodic, random activity in our life, but an essential discipline. It also says that the person who ”practices, ” will be able to discern whether something they hear is good or bad, true or false. ”Practice” again is routine, regular, discipline for the purpose of getting better.
When we have great wisdom, we will be able to quickly discern when we hear something whether it is accurate or false. We may not know exactly what is not true, but we will have a sense that something is wrong. “Our senses are trained” to discern the difference between what is true and what is crapp.
Very few people are willing to take the daily time required to be become a mature and wise person. The rewards and benefits that come into the life of a person who has diligently sought after wisdom like gold, silver, precious treasure and has become like another Solomon are amazing, and one of the really cool benefits is that no one will be able to fool or deceive them.
In our day and age where “false news”, and “fake news” is so prevalent it would be a great gift to be able to know what is true.
