The first thing that many schools throw out of any discussion or pursuit of knowledge is God. Yet here we see that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge — we cannot hope to attain any real understanding of our world, its purpose, or our place in it without first turning to and learning from God.

Do you look at the world through the lens of God’s Word and with a fearsome understanding that it was created for the glory of God? If so, then intellectual pursuits, family relationships, job opportunities, and every other area of life will fit into place. On the other hand, if you do not begin with the fear of the Lord, then life will seem like a crossword puzzle with the wrong answer already scrawled across its middle; nothing will seem to fit.

If you are getting some wrong answers, that don’t seem to fit or solve the problems in your life, try erasing all your own answers and replacing them with God’s. Remember, He is the one that made us and He has given us the solutions we need in His Word. The fear of the Lord is the beginning
