Humility and the Fear of the Lord

Sunday, September 30th, 2007

Humility is the candid acknowledgment of our absolute need for the Lord to work comprehensively in our lives day by day. The fear of the Lord is respect and reverence toward our great God. It is not a fear involving terror or apprehension. Rather, it is based upon profound admiration and dependent devotion.

These succinct definitions of humility and the fear of the Lord are from Bob Hoekstra’s Daily Devotional for today, found at the Blue Letter Bible site. Recently he has had an excellent series dealing with the Lord’s hatred of pride and love of humility. I find the devotionals to be like mini Bible lessons, easy to remember and apply to my life.
