I wonder what your picture of the good life is? Maybe it’s something like you see on MTV or in the movies. Proverbs gives us a very different picture of the good life, and it’s built on one thing, the fear of God.
Proverbs 1:7 says, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge” For a Christian this fear is not just being afraid, but realizing who God is, and listening to him. To live in God’s world that He made, wouldn’t it be a wise thing to listen to what He says?
