Right off the bat in verse 1, Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates correction is stupid. Don’t be stupid! Being able to take correction is a form of discipline because it takes a disciplined heart and mind to understand that correction makes us stronger. In verse 15 it is rephrased in softer terms, The way of a fool seems right to him, but a wise man listens to advice. Don’t be the smartest guy in the room. I always like to say that if I’m the smartest guy in the room, we are all in big trouble! I always want to surround myself with wise counsel that can help me make wiser decisions than I could have made on my own.
