Day 1 of our Proverb Challenge! Today is chapter 1. The verse that stood out to me this morning was verse 7.
“Fear of the LORD is the foundation of true knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.”
Proverbs 1:7 NLT
Fear of the Lord recognizes total dependency on God for everything, including knowledge and wisdom. It is not just a mental attitude but involves service, love, and obeying God. Fear of the Lord is the basis of knowledge. How can we understand life without knowing the most fundamental truth about it……there is no true wisdom apart from a living relationship with God.
