How much should we fear the Lord?

Question

How much should we fear the Lord?

Answer

Take the F out of fear and you have an ear & that is what counts. Listen to what God is saying through your prayers, the Bible and what your Christian friends tell you. Fear is an old-fashioned word meaning respect and gratitude. It is an attitude of mind and not a specific thing that you should be doing. Think of someone who was a combination of a well liked teacher & parent & best friend and you are getting close to what is meant.
