It Is Wise to Fear the Lord!


“The fear of the lord is the beginning of wisdom.”

This is an important part

 of God’s kingdom!


Seeking Godly wisdom is what we must do…

If we’re going to live how God wants us to!


God’s wisdom is filled with love and purity!

Man’s “wisdom” is but

“meaningless vanity!”


Fearing the Lord and seeking his ways…

Will strengthen us and brighten our days!


God is wise and gives the best choices…

We must listen to HIM!  Not other voices!


His wisdom brings hope when all seems lost!

We must lay our worries at the foot of the cross!


Obeying his instructions is very smart and wise!

It helps us not to do what seems good to our eyes!


God’s wisdom brings comfort and much gladness!

It will guard your life with his true happiness!


Won’t you seek his wisdom

 in all you endeavor?

His blessings will follow you

 today and forever!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
