“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

Verse Thoughts

Good parents always want the best for their children. They want them to flourish and prosper, and parents will often try to teach their children the values in life that they themselves have treasured.

Too often, however, the things that are valued by earthly parents come from the fleeting pleasures of this world, and pander to the lust of the flesh and the pride of life – but in the book of Proverbs, we discover king Solomon giving wise advice to his son, which we would all do well to consider and reflect upon.

Solomon had discovered that a reverential fear of the Lord, is the first step towards godly wisdom and understanding, which alone provides the fulfillment in life, which we all seek. His advice to his son was to search for godly wisdom, with the same determined tenacity, that one would search for precious silver or hidden jewels.. for the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. He exhorted his son to diligently seek her out, as one would painstakingly search for hidden treasures – for a knowledge of the Holy One is understanding, and has eternal consequences.

Solomon had been endowed with great wisdom, that surpassed the wisdom of all others, but he spent much of his life seeking pleasure and fulfillment in the wrong places. He discovered that life does not consist in the amount of wealth we possess, the popularity we gain, the accumulation of goods and shackles.. or a powerful position in the community.

It is not dependent on our notable accomplishments, the latest technology we own, the vast qualifications we attain nor the scintillating company we keep. Solomon discovered, through his frenetic search for fulfillment in life.. that the things this world values, are ultimately a striving after the wind, but that.. the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and a knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

The emphasis on fearing the Lord and gaining understanding of our great God and Saviour, is a theme that threads its way throughout the entire Scriptures. The Word of God was recorded, over centuries of time, and starting with the books of Moses, where we discover an unveiling of the eternal character, the unsurpassed attributes and reassuring names of the Lord our God.

We see His plans and purposes unfurl, as we come to a deeper understanding of Who He is, through the life and death of His only begotten Son, for the sin of the world. The more we immerse ourselves in the inerrant and uncompromised Word of God, the more we come to a knowledge of the Holy One.. and the greater we discover the enormity of His plans and purposes, for each one of His blood-bought children.

To know Christ Jesus our Lord, is to know God Himself, for He is the exact image of the invisible God. Christ has made known to us the Father.. and the Father has unveiled to us the Son, in the person of Jesus Christ – for in Him dwells all the might, majesty, dominion, power and fullness, of the Godhead, bodily – and by grace through faith in Christ Jesus our Lord we have been saved and made one – with Him.


As humans fear lives and survives within us frequently in all kinds of situations for sin lives within us which is why Jesus gave his life to show he loves us so much to take all our fears lived by the sins we drive away Jesus wiped it all Clean when he died for us for it speaks of this in many areas throughout his word such as Hebrews 1:3

who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,

He tells us to study in his word when we study in his word push the fear away by knowing him personally we live with faith over fear living in his word giving us knowledge and understanding helping us to be more at peace than to manifest all our fears Proverbs 9:10 explains this

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

With him is our only way of full understanding and comfort without him we live of sin, the world and satan and we have nothing

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true. —Soren Kierkegaard. "...truth is true even if nobody believes it, and falsehood is false even if everybody believes it. That is why truth does not yield to opinion, fashion, numbers, office, or sincerity--it is simply true and that is the end of it" - Os Guinness, Time for Truth, pg.39. “He that takes truth for his guide, and duty for his end, may safely trust to God’s providence to lead him aright.” - Blaise Pascal. "There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" – George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. We live in a “post-truth” world. According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their low information tabloid reality show news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting – this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." – George Orwell “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” ― Soren Kierkegaard
