The fear of the LORD 
 
The fear of the LORD
Is the beginning of wisdom!
It is a deep-seated reverence for
HIS HOLY RIGHTEOUSNESS, HIS PERFECT JUSTICE,
HIS LOVING COMPASSION!
It is based upon a holy respect for HIS being Almighty GOD, the Everlasting Lord, 
From Whom we draw the vitality of being, the source of life!
From Whom we derive sustenance: physical, moral and spiritual! 
 
Our LORD GOD did not come to judge but to save us from
The iniquities of egotistical self-centeredness!
JESUS CHRIST came as a MESSIAH
HE came with LOVING COMPASSION, 
To forgive our human sins and frailties, 
For too long have we practiced self deception;
And now realize the truth,
Salvation is a gift of HIS grace,
So we cannot boast!
