Today’s Gospel

The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom; and before honor is humility. – Proverbs 15:33

Reflection

Fearing God is very important in belief of God, and is what a qualified Christian must possess. Simply put, fearing God is that there is a place for God in the heart. We will undoubtedly be the wisest if in everything we encounter, we practice in this way: not to be arrogant or self-righteous, or do things arbitrarily, but to believe in God, commit all things into God’s hand, do in accordance to God’s requirements and conduct ourselves by God’s word. Share God’s words, “‘To fear God’ does not mean nameless fright and horror, nor to evade, nor to put at a distance, nor is it idolization or superstition. Rather, it is admiration, esteem, trust, understanding, caring, obedience, consecration, love, as well as unconditional and uncomplaining worship, requital, and surrender.
