Primary text: Proverbs 9:10

Fear God and you'll have nothing else to fear.

Fear of the Lord is absolutely central to understanding the book of Proverbs—it is the source of all wisdom, impacts how we respond to God’s teaching, and helps us process suffering. It brings us comfort in the face of grief or anguish we can’t comprehend and reminds us that God is bigger than we think he is. And there’s a sense in which the fear of the Lord is putting Jesus at the center of every aspect of your life. Fear of the Lord is taking God so seriously that you don’t make any decision without considering its impact on what Jesus is doing in and around you. Fear God, and you’ll have nothing else to fear.
