The fear of the Lord?

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
    all who follow his precepts have good understanding.
  To him belongs eternal praise”

NIV Psalm 111:10; KJV Psalm 111:10

In our human ignorance we often try to lean on our own wisdom. Who are we to bow to anyone? Who is He that we should fear him? “I am a good person, I am doing my own thing” many of us may say. Wrong! Lose your pride my friend! Apart from God, we are just a bunch of  lost souls in the vast Universe. He loves us, but He also corrects us and wants us to obey Him and return to Him when our time here is up.

One thought on “The fear of the Lord?

  1. To fear God is a great gift if we are exercised by his ways that are acceptable in his sight. We are told to have a reverence and fear of God yet many will mock those who follow him when they turn from traditions of men. But he has called his people from the world and their practices and his protection covers them with his Love.God Bless You.
