The Fear Of The LORD

Some wise and insightful words from Proverbs 9:10 form our thought for the day.

You love God.   You praise God.   You thank God.   You ask God.

But do you fear God?   We live in an age of ever-increasing casualness when it comes to our relationship with the Almighty.   Let me encourage you to ask yourself periodically throughout the day:

  • What good does it do to love God if I do not fear Him?
  • What good does it do to praise God if I do not respect Him?
  • What good does it do to thank God if I am not struck by awe of Him?
  • What good does it do to ask God for the things I need if reverence isn’t the foundation of my asking?

Let’s all remember that the fear of Yahweh, the Creator of heaven and earth, is the very beginning of wisdom.
