PROFIT IN THE FEAR OF GOD- PT.1



 

The fear of the Lord leads to life: Then one rests content, untouched by trouble.
Proverbs 19:23

I remember my days at Evangel College, how I dreaded being caned by Mr. Madu.
The skill by which he drops that stick on an ass could make one stand for days.
I wasnt a rebellious student but there could be occasions of mass punishment which I often prayed wouldnt happen.

The fear of Mr. Madu made us listen attentively in class, do math and further math assignments and not turn our necks when he was invigilating.

Unconsciously, we got used to behaving in math class at least...LOL

However, the kind of fear God seeks is not the kind we gave to Mr. Madu.
The fear for Mr. Madu made us sit up in maths class; we dint take the "attitude" into other classes because that fear didnt change us.

GOD DESIRES AND DESERVES the reverence of his person and deep appreciation of his wisdom that leads us to make choices that please him. This kind of fear transforms your life.

Proverbs says the fear of the Lord leads to life.

When you have awesome reverence for God, his person and principles, you would enjoy (LIFE-the vitality, fruitfulness and fulfillment of existence).
That really is LIFE.

God wants to lead you into LIFE. He wants to help you rest content (in satisfaction) and untouched by trouble.

Have RESPECT FOR HIS INSTRUCTION. Stop being afraid of popular opinion.

FEAR GOD; FEEL LIFE!

IS RESPECT REALLY RECIPROCAL?

While respect is due regard for the feelings, wishes, or rights of others (Oxford dictionaries.com); the word reciprocal refers to something done, given, felt, or owed in return (The free dictionary.com) The popular phrase "respect is reciprocal" is said to urge people to regard the feelings, wishes or rights of others first, before expecting respect in return. Read: The art of getting along The human nature has the tendency to give back what it gets. Hence, people would averagely respect anyone who respects them. However, there is no guarantee that people would regard your feelings or wishes when they have to make decisions or act. Therefore, it is unreasonable to respect people only because you want respect in return. Having such expectation could lead to hurt when people fail to reciprocate the respect you have offered them.

SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGEMENT

Social media has always been there; but not everyone paid close attention or saw the need to set up a profile for themselves or their businesses.   With COVID-19 radically obstructing the norm, more individuals and businesses have woken up to the necessity of having a social media profile.  I believe you have been woke for a very long time or perhaps you are just waking up.
