The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 1:7
True knowledge and true wisdom begin with proper regard for the LORD God who made us and gives us life. Many, thinking themselves wise, foolishly despise the wisdom and instruction the LORD offers and gives us in His Word and neglect to repent and look in faith to Christ Jesus and His cross for mercy and forgiveness.
Keep me from foolishness, O LORD, and, by means of Your Word, make me wise unto salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. Amen.
[Scripture is quoted from the King James Version of the Bible.]
