LOVE AND FEAR.

The bible said in the old testament that "the fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom (Psalm 111:10)

Jesus said "Do not think that I shall accuse you to the father, there is one who accuses you, Moses in whom you trust (John.5:45)

Studying the Old Testament, Moses led the people in the fear of the Lord but not in his love. 98% of the scriptures in the old testament, when talking about God emphasizes the fear of Him above loving him.

Well, here comes sweet Jesus teaching us about the love of God and and Loving Him too.

(Mathew 22:36, Mark. 10:30). Telling us about the greatest commandment is Loving God and loving our neighbors, no wonder the Pharisees got mad.

Jesus also taught us about how God also loves and cares for us (Mathew 6: 25-34)

Here is the conclusion of the whole matter

As there are different kinds of love so also we have the different types of fear. The fear of man Heb.13:6 (we are not to fear man)

And
The fear of God Hebrew 12:8, Colossians 3:22, Rom.3:18 [This is the godly fear Hebrew 5:7, 11:7] (which is the beginning of wisdom.)

Now:
The Fear of the Lord is the BEGINNING of wisdom,

But The LOVE of the Lord IS wisdom.

For there's no fear in Love.

For God is Love and His perfect Love casts out fear ( 1 John.4:7-21)

Shalom!

From a special somebody!
