Our opening text today highlights the necessity of having understanding. It instructs you to not only have wisdom, but also to get understanding. This is because you require understanding to operate wisdom, especially if you desire to succeed in your career or business.
For example, a man of understanding does not just work a job, he has an understanding of the inner workings of his job. And because of this understanding, he can migrate from just having a job to managing others or even becoming a provider of jobs. This is why you ought to prioritise gaining understanding.
For instance, how well do you understand your job, and your chosen career or your profession? Do you understand its inner workings or are you just an employee?
Being wise is not good enough. You need to get an understanding about what you do. This is what will bring you into favour and prominence.
