The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practice it have a good understanding. – Psalm 111:10
“Fear of the Lord” doesn’t mean you think God is going to get you or hurt you in some way. Fear of the Lord doesn’t mean God is going to pounce on you the next time you do something wrong. No, this kind of “fear” is a deep respect for the power and majesty of God. This fear comes from knowing that God created the heavens and the earth, gave us life and sent Jesus Christ to give his life for us. This fear also knows that this all-powerful God longs to give each one of us the fullness of life forever. When you stop and think about it, God deserves that kind of fear.
