Of all the knowledge that can be known, none of it is worth anything unless it is built on the most important foundation. That foundation is the fear of the Lord. It is the most important knowledge because recognizing God is all in all, everything we learn will grow out of that fact and God will direct our knowledge until we get to Him. If we want wisdom, we begin with fear of the Lord.
Heavenly Father, help us to search ourselves so that we have that fear that leads to wisdom and knowledge that is worth eternal life with you. In Jesus' name.
Read Proverbs 1:7
"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline." (NIV)
"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction." (KJV)
