What comes to mind when you hear someone mention, "the fear of the Lord"? This is Ron Moore with today's Bible Minute.
The fear of the Lord is not a cowering terror or horror. It is the honor and respect of the heavenly Father demonstrated by doing what He says. It is one's obedience, even when no one else is looking, that confirms healthy fear.
In Proverbs 14:26, Solomon said it this way. "In the fear of the LORD one has strong confidence, and his children will have a refuge."
This passage is a great reminder that as parents, our children are watching. Little hearts are feeling your emotions. Little feet are following. And only when our refuge is in the Lord will they have a genuine example of true, godly confidence.
