Today’s Reading: Joel 1:1‐3:21, Revelation 1:1‐20, Psalm 128:1‐6, Proverbs 29:18
Context: David is talking about blessings for the man who fears the Lord.
Psalm 128:3-4 “Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table. Behold, thus shall the man be blessed who fears the Lord.”
- The man who fears the Lord will be blessed with:
- A wife like a fruitful vine within his house
- Children like olives hoots around his table
Today I am moving furniture (including our table) into our new house, so this verse jumped off the page for me.
Apply: I need to have a healthy fear of God. I want to spend time posturing myself appropriately before the creator, savior, and life giver. “Lord, may I live out of a healthy fear of you.”
What does the Bible mean when it tells us to fear God?
