“Righteousness exalts a nation,
But sin is a disgrace to any people.”
The source of most problems in our country today is that men do not distinguish between right and wrong.
That is wisdom. Godly living is no longer pursued by men or taught to children. So we have a society
where right is wrong and wrong is right. Now, more than ever, men need “hokmah” for Godly living
and for passing on to the next generation. ......We need the wisdom of Proverbs!
Proverbs or wisdom in ancient times was something very valuable; something to strive for, to seek.
“hokmah” was a high priority for Jewish men and for their children. Children were most important
in the Jewish community. Josephus wrote “ our chief ambition is for the education of our children.”
The center of education was the Jewish home. By using Proverbs, parents could educate their children
in Godly living, just as their children would teach the next generation.
Solomon writes: “Wisdom is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare to her.”
(Proverbs 3:15) He was the richest man that ever lived; yet he says nothing is greater than wisdom.
James 1 says that if we only ask, God will give us wisdom generously. Ask and you shall receive;
seek and you shall find; knock and the door shall be opened.
Be Bold for God - Join with us in a revival to help men distinguish between right and wrong.
“But the righteous are as bold as a lion.”
