Most people do not fear God. Our actions say so. We fear so many other things, but not God. We do more wrong than right.
You are to fear one thing . . . and that’s God. Not to be scared of him, but to fear him out of respect for who he is, and instruction for wisdom.
Fear God enough to do right, because you love him too much to do wrong.
Deuteronomy 8:6 (KJV) – therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways and to fear him.
Proverbs 15:33 (KJV) – the fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom: and before honour is humility.
Leviticus 25:17 (KJV) – ye shall not therefore oppress one another; but thou shalt fear thy God: for I am the Lord your God.
