Over, and over again, in the book of Revelation, it is said, “He that hath an ear let him hear”. This is talking about opening your ear of understanding to God. We are to be wise unto salvation. The acquiring of wisdom demands a teachable spirit. 

Under Gods Command

Proverbs 4:3-7 When I was a boy in my father’s house, still tender, and an only child of my mother, he taught me and said, “Lay hold of my words with all your heart; keep my commands and you will live.  Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or swerve from them.  Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; lover her, and she will watch over you.  Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom.  Though it cost all you have, get understanding.  You can learn from the Scriptures and then create a legacy of wisdom as you teach your own children. 

 One of the greatest responsibilities of parents is to encourage their children to become wise.  Wisdom comes from God; parents can only urge their children to turn to him.  If your parents never taught you in this way, God’s Word can function as a loving and compassionate mother or father to you.  If you want wisdom, you must decide to go after it.  This will take resolve-a determination not to abandon the search once you begin no matter how difficult the road may become. This is not a once-in-a-lifetime step, but a daily process of choosing between two paths-the wicked (Proverbs 4:14-17, 19) and the righteous (Proverbs 4:18).  Nothing else is more important or more valuable.
