A Word to the Wise - Week 1- A Healthy Fear

February 5, 2023

Today we began the "Wisdom" series...a four week series where we will discuss wisdom from the book of Proverbs...
Today our message is about the beginning of Wisdom - The Fear of the Lord. 
Is this a terrified fear of God?
or a healthy reverential fear?
Whom shall we fear when God is on our side?

The next three messages are...
The Wisdom of Words
Wisdom at Work &
Wisdom in Marriage

Proverbs 1:7 NASB
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and instruction.

We pray that you will invite Jesus into your life and make Him Lord of your life.  If you need to pray about this with someone please call Pastor Harvey at 323-316-7131 and he will be glad to pray with you.

After singing a few songs, then as a congregation we read together aloud the following scripture...

Proverbs 1:1-7 (NASB)
The Usefulness of Proverbs

1 The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel:

2 To know wisdom and instruction,
To discern the sayings of understanding,

3 To receive instruction in wise behavior,
Righteousness, justice, and integrity;

4 To give prudence to the naive,
To the youth knowledge and discretion,

5 A wise person will hear and increase in learning,
And a person of understanding will acquire wise counsel,

6 To understand a proverb and a saying,
The words of the wise and their riddles.

7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge;
Fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Just a Close Walk with Thee
Artist: Patsy Cline and Willie Nelson
