Summary: This is a short devotional about 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 instruction.

This is the theme for the book of Proverbs

This idea in one way or another is repeated throughout the entire book

This fear is a loving reverence for God that includes submission to His Lordship and to the commands of His Word

God is our king

But even as we stand in awe of Him we can rejoice

Proverbs was written to give “prudence to the simple

Knowledge and discretion to the young

And to make wise men wiser

Proverbs 1:4-5 To give subtlety to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion. [5] A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:

Acquiring wisdom and knowing how to avoid the pitfalls of folly

Will lead to health and success

Although Proverbs is a practical book dealing with the art of living

It bases wisdom solidly on the fear of the Lord

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge
