"The Fear of the Lord is the foundation of trueknowledge (the beginning of Wisdom),But fools despise wisdom and discipline."Prov 1:7

Be sensitive to what He requires...
I am talking about Relationship with the Spirit of God, not religion.
If you LOVE Me, You will OBEY Me...He says.
You just don't wake up one day and Love Him.
You Hear His Voice and you respond.
This is a continual walk. This is the whole 'enchilada' of honest Christianity.
You don't have to be in a church to experience God.
He is Everywhere.
The Fear of man often leads us into the low areas of life.
Fear of disappointing people.
Fear of failure...Fear of confrontation.
You are Wise, if you make a choice rooted in:

you might find yourself in a particular situation...one where you will have to choose, and it might cost you something or even someone dear. It might cost you your reputation, a dear friend, who can't seem to agree with your life choices and the direction you have decided to take....... or even that promotion at work.
