Today’s reading: Proverbs 9:10
The beginning of wisdom
We read in Proverbs 9:10:
10 “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom,
And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
Fearing God doesn’t mean you are paralyzed with fear that you can’t do anything anymore. The Fear of Yahweh means that we revere, respect, and love God. It means that because we fear God, we seek a relationship with Him.
Now, true and heavenly wisdom does not come to us naturally. We can’t discover them on our own. We can never become truly wise until and unless we fear Yahweh.
The Hebrew word for beginning here can also mean the opening, which means, when we fear God, we open the door to gaining wisdom. Fearing God is the key to learning about how to truly live this life to the fullest.
As we look around us, people have lost their fear of God. As a result, what most people think to be wisdom is actually foolishness. They think that it is wise to think that the world came by itself and that there’s no need for a creator. They think that life here on earth came out spontaneously.
As a result, people don’t value human life anymore. We see the rise of evil dictators and how they cause so much pain and suffering in the world.
There are numerous examples of people thinking that they are wise but actually fools in their thinking. From our school system to our government, people have tried to throw away God and remove any trace of Him. They thought that they are better off without God.
We are now seeing the consequences of this foolish thinking.
The best way to live this life is to live it according to God’s will and purpose. When we fear God, we strive to have a close relationship with Him. When we fear God, we learn to follow His commandments. When we fear God, He will grant us wisdom that will guide us in every decision we make.
Thus, without fear of God, we all become fools trying to figure out how to live this life.
