Shabbat Shalom, friends!
I hope that you have been well!
Over the past couple of weeks, I read various random verses from the Word, and I kept returning to the same topic which is the fear of ADONAI (the Lord). One particular verse that stands out, is the first section of Psalm 111:10 “the first and foremost point of wisdom is the fear of ADONAI“. In the Hebrew text, it is even shorter, only 4 words (רֵאשִׁית חָכְמָה, יִרְאַת יְהוָה). In my opinion, it’s very clear what the starting point of wisdom is. We could spend hours and hours studying the dietary requirements given in the Torah, bible prophecies, bible history etc, but if we don’t fear the Lord (that is, obey), it’s a bit of a waste of time. It only takes a second to read Psalm 111:10 and gain invaluable wisdom instantly.
Stay focused on Yeshua the Messiah!
I hope you have a peaceful weekend and Shabbat!
