The Fear Of The Lord
Text: Proverbs 1:7
There are two kinds of fear, a wrong kind and a right one. The Bible is full of passages that tell us to “fear not” e.g. in Genesis 15, Luke 2:10, Revelation 1:17 and John 6:20. This lesson is about the right kind of fear, the fear of God, which the Bible recommends that we ought to have. This fear is clean, wholesome and brings wisdom.
Job 28:28 and Psalm 19:9.lt is a good thing to fear the Lord
