What does the writer of Proverbs mean by this: "Cease to hear instruction, my son, and you will stray from the words of knowledge"?


Proverbs 27:1 - 27

ESV - 1 Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring. 2 Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; a stranger, and not your own lips.
