Fear of God Devotional: Cultivating Wisdom and Repentance in the Home

How does a Christian family cultivate wisdom and repentance within the home?

Kevin Swanson explains in this video that pastors need to encourage fathers and mothers to go back to the foundations and to teach their children that the beginning of wisdom is the fear of God. One of the biggest problems today is that few people fear God. 

This is where the Christian family needs to look to. We need the fear of God. It is the beginning of salvation, of knowledge, and to understand what it is to be a man or woman of God. It can get easy to get caught up in trivial matters. Fathers must lead the way and set an example of looking to Scripture and fearing God.

Proverbs 1:7 (NKJV) – “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”
