The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Proverbs 9:10
Want to get smart? Here’s how to start:
Put another way, if you don’t fear God, you’re dumb. It’s that simple.
Here’s a quick test to see if you truly fear God: Take a look at the past 24 hours. Do your actions show that you fear God? Or do they show that you fear other people and their opinions of you more? Or maybe losing your job? Or losing your stuff? Or pain? Or maybe a terrorist attack? Or getting hit by a bus? Or maybe an invasion of brain-sucking aliens?
The world wants us to fear everything but God. Don’t. Turn off the TV, pick up a Bible and read about our all-knowing, all-powerful, all-everything God. Respect him. Honor him. Worship him. Fear him.
