“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise.”
As Christians, the fear of the Lord must be seen in our life, it is not optional. The way we think, act and talk should show that we respect, revere God. Without the fear of the Lord, we cannot talk about wisdom, for wisdom commences with it.
Let us walk in the fear of Lord by living a holy life, a life which pleases God (2 Corinthians 7:1).
