This verse helps us to see that the bible can provide knowledge and thinking ability. So before we make important decisions we should consult Gods word.

1:4 To refine or make better the simple like one purifies gold. As for the young man who is rash and boastful, teach knowledge and discretion. Teach the young how to think about actions and situations then how to remain humble and quiet about it.
