A study of Proverbs helps you gain wisdom and practice the art of skillful living. The Hebrew word translated “wisdom” is hokma. Hokma describes anybody who has a skill.
Some people have political hokma and know how to get elected. Others have business hokma and know how to make money, or athletic hokma and they can perform at the top of their sport. Still others possess medical hokma and can heal a broken bone.
It takes divine hokma to raise a child in the fear of the Lord and to avoid the pitfalls of sexual immorality. Do you need financial hokma or relationship hokma? Proverbs is your place to learn and then practice the fine art of skillful living.
