Proverbs 1:7 "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction." ESV
Of all the knowledge mankind can obtain, it is worthless unless it is connected at the foundation to the fear of the Lord. The fear of the Lord is the most important knowledge. Recognizing God is all in all will result in total trust that God will give us the knowledge that gets us to Him. To fear the Lord is not to be afraid of Him. It is an all encompassing reverence and humble acceptance that He is Knowledge.
Heavenly Father, help us to search ourselves to see if we have the reverence and acceptance that leads us to the wisdom and knowledge that takes us to eternal life with You. In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
