It seems both Proverbs and Ecclesiastes reckon to really know wisdom is to fear God.
Remember Prov 1:8:
7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge
and then this is how Ecclesiastes ends:
Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. 12:13
I wonder whether this fear thing is going on because we don’t!
Listen to what Jesus has to say:
4“I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more. 5But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear him who, after the killing of the body, has power to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him. Luke 12:1-5
Often we can live in fear, but it’s directed in the wrong place. Jesus gets it and says don’t worry about other people. What can they do?
We think they can do alot and so we fear them instead of fearing God.
Let us then be fearless as we boldly proclaim Gods ultimate wisdom:
1 Cor 1:18-31
