See you at 6!!
3 Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
within your house;
your children will be like olive shoots
around your table.
4 Behold, thus shall the man be blessed
who fears the Lord.
5 The Lord bless you from Zion!
May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem

Peace be upon Israel
I have always had a healthy fear of my dad, still do even today. I never wanted to make him mad. I knew that making him mad would incur his wrath upon me. That wrath made way its out in yelling, in an ear pulling, time in the corner, and even a spanking.
What was even worse and would still be worse today is disappointing him. I never want to disappoint him, because I value his honor of me and I want him to be proud of me. I don't want to do something that would remove that honor and pride that he ahs for me.
I know he will keep loving me no matter what. I know he will always have my back. So I'm not afraid of losing his love. He always has and always will forgive me. I know this without a doubt!
This is what makes me want to do things and live a life that will make him proud.
That is the same "fear" that we should have for Almighty God. When we do, then the things above are bound to happen. THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE When we as fathers are good examples to our wives and children.
THE CHURCH NEEDS AND HAS ALWAYS NEEDED MEN: fathers, husbands, workers, leaders, who FEAR THE LORD!!
We know that our heavenly Father will never stop loving us. He will love us no matter what. And when he sees us, he doesn't see our failures or are shortcomings. He sees Jesus. THANKS BE TO GOD!
This fact is what makes us want to honor, serve, and obey our heavenly Father! Do that Today! Praise and thank the Lord for those who fear the Lord in your life, and follow their example!
Prayer: Lord, help me to have a holy fear of you so that I may be blessed as you have promised. Amen.
