Proverbs 31:30 says “Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.” Growing up I was always taught that I could find comfort and love in God so this verse is quite confusing to me. What does it mean to be a woman who fears the lord?
Having a healthy fear of God basically means that you don’t underestimate Him and respect him. Some people, for instance, think that having a relationship with God means that they can treat Him like their best friend and nothing more. Well, He is your best friend, but you need to respect Him. God isn’t just another human being with a big title, and He is the most powerful thing you’ll ever know! 🙂 We tend to forget that from time to time.
