    SAKAL is the Hebrew word for a very special type of wisdom. It means to pay attention to potential circumstances. It also means to be politic. Being politic means to be artful in prudence, expedience and shrewdness. It also means to be smoothly compliant with sophistication. If you’re sophisticated and charming then you have elements of SAKAL in you.

    Diplomacy is in itself SAKAL. Being urbane is also a sign of having SAKAL. Moses had SAKAL and that enabled him to engage Pharaoh in diplomatic missions. He was also urbane, polished in manners and could easily engage royalty. He understood the city life.

    Heb 11:23 KJV By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw he was a proper (ASTEIOS) child; and they were not afraid of the king’s commandment.

    ASTEIOS is the closest Greek word to SAKAL. It means to be urbane, city minded and to have polished manners.

    Jacob operated in SAKAL so that even in blindness, he was able to bless and bequeath heritage to Ephraim instead of Manasseh even though Manasseh was the the eldest child of Joseph. Being the eldest, he was the heir apparent.

    SAKAL brings GOOD SUCCESS. Not all success is good for you. With SAKAL WISDOM, you’ll get to know the right kind of success that you should pursue.
