Ask To Be Wise (James 1)

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.

Do you want to be wise? Ask. As you ask, genuinely seek to learn the truth. Don’t just say to God “I need to know what to do…” and then don’t even crack open the Bible. The answers are there, be honest about that. Don’t remain willfully ignorant of what the Bible says on a topic just because you think you might not like what He says. Don’t doubt God, or at least, when you do, learn to trust His word.

I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.
