Book of Proverbs

One my favorite books in the bible is the book of Proverbs. And for this week, I will be sharing memory verses from the book of Proverbs with "fear of the Lord" phrase. So join me as I memorize/review these verses everyday. May we have a blessed and fruitful week ahead of us.
Our first memory verse for this week is in Proverbs 1:7. The Bible says, "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. "
Every person I believe has his/her own fear. Many have fear of heights (Acrophobia). Some are afraid of spiders (Arachnophobia) and there are so many phobias that a person might have. But the fear mention in Proverbs 1:7 is different from these fears. The fear here is the kind of fear that is accompanied by love. The kind of fear that would compel us to obey God's instructions. The kind of fear that would give as the guilt feeling even before we commit an intentional sin. The fear that would make us grieve whenever we continue to disobey God's Word. If we implant this kind of fear in our lives, we won't have any other fear. We will have the courage to do great things for God. We would be fearless to follow every commandment that God has given us. And these instructions and commandments is for our learning and for our own good.
But this is also the fear that fools do not want to have in their life. Because fools do not want to be instructed. They believe that they know everything and they can run their own lives which is really foolishness.
Let us continue to pray that God will cultivate the Godly fear in us.
