Proverbs 24:22 For their calamity shall rise suddenly; and who knoweth the ruin of them both?
Proverbs 24:23 These things also belong to the wise. It is not good to have respect of persons in judgment.

Proverbs 24:31 And, lo, it was all grown over with thorns, and nettles had covered the face thereof, and the stone wall thereof was broken down.
Proverbs 24:32 Then I saw, and considered it well: I looked upon it, and received instruction.
Proverbs 24:33 Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:
Proverbs 24:18 Lest the LORD see it, and it displease him, and he turn away his wrath from him.
Proverbs 24:17 Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth:
Proverbs 24:2 For their heart studieth destruction, and their lips talk of mischief.
Proverbs 24:3 Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established:
Proverbs 24:4 And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.
Proverbs 24:5 A wise man is strong; yea, a man of knowledge increaseth strength.
Proverbs 24:6 For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war: and in multitude of counsellors there is safety.
Proverbs 24:7 Wisdom is too high for a fool: he openeth not his mouth in the gate.
Proverbs 24:8 He that deviseth to do evil shall be called a mischievous person.
Proverbs 24:9 The thought of foolishness is sin: and the scorner is an abomination to men.
Proverbs 24:10 If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.
Proverbs 24:11 If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain;
Proverbs 24:12 If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works?
Proverbs 24:13 My son, eat thou honey, because it is good; and the honeycomb, which is sweet to thy taste:
Proverbs 24:14 So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off.
Proverbs 24:15 Lay not wait, O wicked man, against the dwelling of the righteous; spoil not his resting place:
Proverbs 24:16 For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.
Proverbs 24:34 So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth; and thy want as an armed man.

In this passage of scripture, the writer (presumably Solomon) tells of walking by the "field of the slothful, and by the vineyard of the man void of understanding...". He then notices the condition of it.

Many of us stop there. We notice the condition of the life of others. We notice the trouble that perhaps they have gotten themselves into. We notice what have been the negative consequences of their choices.

However, the writer went further than that. He states that he "looked upon it, and received instruction." Let's consider this... how did he receive instruction? Did someone pop out of the vineyard he was looking at and proceed to teach a lesson? I don't think that was the case.

The writer simply received instruction by observing. This brings me to my point. If we only notice the choices others have made and what the result was, we will learn nothing and, at worst, will stumble along to make the same mistake. However, if we will see the mistakes others have made and then go on to "receive instruction" from those mistakes, we will gain the wisdom of the experience without the pain of the consequences.
