Fear: Fearing God (Proverbs 1)series: Jeff Jones, Chase Oaks Church
What is the secret to life, according to Solomon: the fear of God. Fear is not terror. Rather it means, "I am going to bend to God's better way. I am not going to trust my feelings, or my will, or my instincts. I am going to be open to what God says and put that into practice, even if it isn't what feels right at the time." it's a decision to be open, to be teachable, to submit to god's better way. This is the one trait that separates the highly effective, very wise people in life: the fear of the Lord.
