Day 135

“Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true wisdom. All who obey his commandments will grow in wisdom. Praise him forever!” (Psalm 111:10)

There is something about the fact that this is the 111th Psalm. I don’t know why but that number just stuck in my mind. But I picked this verse because it reminded me of one of the Proverbs I’ve read.

It doesn’t give the reader a lot of comfort, does it? Fear the Lord?

But why is fear seen as a negative emotion? Fear gives us a rush of adrenaline. It gives us the strength and confidence to attempt things we’ve never done before…

Ummm…

Something that gives us sudden strength and confidence?

Oh I see!
