Love Holiness

in Christian Living/Situational Holiness

If you love holiness, then you're on your way to wisdom! Here's today's Bible Minute.

Proverbs 9:10, "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding." You can't claim to be wise, without reverence for God.

That's why Proverbs 9:10 is so important, because it adds the element of the holiness of God. Remember, one of the ways that you show the fear of the Lord is you hate evil. The flip side of that is, you love holiness. Anyone that lives a life that is holy is a life you love. Anyone who lives a life that is unholy is a life you hate. That's the way God defines the world, and it's the way we need to define the world as well.
