老實. In Chinese, it translates as honest. However, with it comes some connotations such as frank, simple-minded, and naive.
I’ve gotten this from quite a few people that know me. I’m glad that I’m learning about myself through that. I think it can be good to be honest and frank. However, the simple-minded-ness and naivety needs some work. Gotta figure out how to grow in wisdom, discernment, and some basics to not believe everything, be taken advantage of, or oblivious.
Glad that God gives wisdom! Phew!
My son, if you receive my words and treasure up my commandments with you, making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding; yes, if you call out for insight and raise your voice for understanding, if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures, then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding; he stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk in integrity, guarding the paths of justice and watching over the way of his saints.(Proverbs 2:1-8 ESV)
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
(James 1:5-8 ESV)
