I wanted to share some of what I have gleaned from Proverbs so I decided to share a little bit every Wednesday. I am calling it:
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. 1:7
Fear = reverence
When you reverence someone, you humble yourself to their wisdom and power. You are not prideful, but you take their words to heart. You reflect on them and if you are wise yourself, you will live by them. Do not despise God's Words as they are full of life!
