“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom” Fear of the Lord – should we be terrified of him?
In the Narnia books this was said about Aslan: “Safe? Of course he isn’t safe, but he is good, he’s the King”.
Likewise, God is to be respected, held in awe but also recognised for who He is and what that means for us. We need to know our place before our Almighty, powerful God and let that direct the way we pray to Him and live our lives. This will help us grow in wisdom.
