Do not be wise in your own eyes; FEAR THE LORD AND DEPART FROM EVIL.....Proverbs 3:7b
Most people do not realize there are two types of fear. There is the fear of danger, fear of people, fear of situations. They are afraid of His power and afraid of His righteousness. But the FEAR of the LORD that the bible speaks of is REVERENCE for a Holy God. A profound reverence, adoring awed respect. Honor and respect felt or shown, to glorify! Does that sound like someone to be afraid of? Our God is a HOLY God! The only time there should be "FEAR" is when we turn away from Him and follow the ways of the evil one. So the Scripture could be read this way: "Honor, respect, reverence" the Lord and depart from evil....SIMPLY GRATEFUL!
