Words of Comfort: Healthy fear.


"‘Healthy fear’ ... what an idiot!!" Lothar Reiss. 

It is wise to have a healthy fear of things that can harm you--the teeth of poisonous snakes,  high cliffs with lose edges, and the power of raw electricity. Those who are wise stay away from vicious snakes, edges of cliffs, and they are very cautious around electricity. But the Bible says "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom." Be wise—start at the beginning--fear God.  Those that don’t fear Him will one day understand how foolish they were…to their eternal detriment.
