Choose the Fear of Lord and Hate all Evil

The fear of the Lord is beginning of wisdom.  Proverbs 1:20 – 33 (NIV) is a warning against rejecting wisdom.

The passage says:

20 Wisdom calls aloud in the street, she raises her voice in public squares;  21 at the head of the noisy streets she cries out, in the gateways of the city she makes her speech.  22 How long will you simple one love simple ways?  How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge?  23  If you had responded to my rebuke, I would have poured out my heart to you and made my thoughts known to you.  24 But since you rejected me when I called and no one gave heed when I stretched out my hand,  25 since you ignored all my advice and would not accept my rebuke, 26  I in turn will laugh at your disaster; I will mock when calamity overtakes you- 27 when calamity overtakes you like a storm, when disaster sweeps over you like whirlwind, when distress and trouble overwhelm you.  28 Then they will call me but I will not answer, they will look for me but will not find me.  29  Since they hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the Lord,  30 since they would not accept my advice and spurned my rebuke, 31 they will eat the fruit of their schemes.  32 For the waywardness of the simple will kill them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them; 33 but who ever listen to me live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm.

To fear the Lord means to have deep respect for the Lord.  You should always put the Lord first in your life.  I do not understand God‘s ways all the time, but I choose to trust Jesus with my life.  God’s way is the only way to go!
