Should You Fear God?

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.—Proverbs 9:10 (KJV)

What does it mean to fear God? Author JoHannah Reardon gives her insight as: “Fearing God keeps us from fearing anything else. Because God also loves perfectly, we can trust him and know that one so powerful will conquer all else that we fear in the world. Perfect love balances fear.”

Today's Prayer:

Heavenly Father, teach me to trust and fear You, for I know true comfort comes from having You as a daily presence in my life.
