"Fear of the Lord" in the Bible: Proverbs 1:7
How do we become wise? As in many other places in the Bible, here we are reminded that true wisdom has its roots not in lofty education or human intelligence, but in faithful service to (rendered "fear of") God.
Fear the Lord - a Christian perspective
God watches out for those who love and obey ("fear") Him. When we commit our lives to God, we can be confident that God will protect and help us.
