The Fear of the Lord

The Fear of the Lord
Proverbs 1:7.... The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.
This scripture does not recommend that we should be afraid of the Lord but rather we should be in awe of Him. We should respect the Lord and at the same time have a healthy dread of displeasing Him. With this attitude we will know Him and do what is right.
This knowledge, once attained, will develop into heavenly wisdom and Christ-like discipline. We would be fools not to pursue and attain such qualities. Heavenly wisdom is the Godly application of the knowledge that comes from knowing God.
Knowing God is having the intimate insights into God that come through our holy reverence and deep love for Him. The wisdom that comes out of this relationship is the manifestation of the character of Christ in us.
What a high and attainable goal.
Thank you Jesus.
