Verse 26 of Proverbs 31 talks about how the Wife of Noble Character is able to advise those around her, imparting wisdom and faithful instructions. What an honor to be counted on by those around you to be able to give sound biblical advice, not for our own glory but to give testimony to how God is at work in our lives.
I want to strive to be someone that people can trust, and to be ready to give biblical wisdom if someone asks. Wisdom doesn't come by osmosis though! Although much wisdom comes from life experience, there is much to be gained by others that have shared their life experiences. Which is why I want to spend a little more time reading. What an easy way to learn from others! I am blessed to have many resources available to me to gain access to books, and I don't want to take that for granted.
