What does Proverbs 5:1 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Proverbs 5:1

My son, attend unto my wisdom
Not the wisdom of the world or of the flesh, worldly wisdom and carnal policy; but spiritual and evangelical wisdom; such as one that is greater than Solomon has in him, even Christ; "for in him are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge", ( Colossians 2:3 ) ; and which he teaches and communicates to others, even all proper instructions for conduct in life: the Gospel, and each of the doctrines of it, which are "the wisdom of God in a mystery", ( 1 Corinthians 2:7 ) : these every child of God, and disciple of Christ, ought carefully and diligently to attend unto; [and] bow thine ear to my understanding:
listen attentively to those things which I have, and give an understanding of, even things divine and spiritual; the understanding of which is of the utmost moment and importance.
