I think this will be short (always my goal but seldom obtained).
Fear of the Lord … of God! The Lord’s anger taken out on Adam and Eve to the destruction during the Exodus and only a part of it! Sermons of Fire and Brimstone and more!
Some pretty scary stuff! We don’t respond to ‘nice’ really well, and in fact we ignore it more often than not. Like we deserve everything. We as human beings don’t take nice things seriously. Did we listen to our parents and what happened … ? We wished we had.
Fear of the Lord that any second He could suddenly appear and we’d all be crispy critters!
Now that gets our attention! Still we forget pretty quickly after it doesn’t happen and I think that’s foolish. Our parents (godly) who have spent their whole lives in raising, providing for us still don’t get the credit they deserve and are often hurt over and over.
Fear of the Lord comes down to a simple thing like with our parents. We love our parents and don’t want to disappoint them for anything finally, but … God loves us more! How much more should we Fear disappointing Him!
Thanks for listening and God Bless. Now that’s Awesome! Rick =)
