An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Age of Fear

(Pro 15:33 KJV)  The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.

We are living in an age of fear.  The most obvious is the terror that has been ingrained in us about a virus.  If you don’t believe it then look at all the people walking in the sunshine with no living being within range and wearing a mask.  Sometimes they even have gloves.  Their days are filled with terror.  Every time they sneeze or cough they fear they are on an irreversible spiral toward death.  

We also see it in the attempts to divide Americans based on race.  The object is to get us to fear and hate each other.  We have all seen countless videos of elderly people, often Asian, being sucker punched as they went about their business.  The idea is to get you afraid to live life and to be suspicious of your neighbors.

So?  We have forgotten our fear of the Lord.  We have substituted other gods before Him.  Will fear of the Lord keep you from getting sick?  Don’t be silly.  A healthy fear of the Lord will remind you that you have a God designed immune system to fight off the sickness and help you keep your perspective.  I will take God’s design over a chemical concoction of a pharmaceutical company any day.
