Time Keller said that: We become the things we love the most.
That’s what the Bible mean when it says that ‘The fear of te Lord is the foundation of all wisdom’ ( verse 10)
Or ‘The good life begins in the fear of God ( MSG version)
We, the modern people, are interested in making money and making a good life, but we fail to see wisdom as the path to a blessed life.
That’s why the disappointment when we get money or when we taste what we see as the ‘good life’ is great.
When we fail to see God for who He is: The one who performs great works, glorious and majestic, creative and eternal righteous, gracious and compassionate, generous provider and caring, faithful and just, trustworthy and upright, redemptive and holy…we loose the awe and honour He is due.
And when we do that, our wisdom slips into folly and we waste out lives chasing after nothingness and vanities.
Dear Lord, cause my heart to fear you with honour and let your joy fill my life daily.
