The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge...(Proverbs 1:7)
Holy respect and fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom and knowledge. That is why Jesus taught us to pray "Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed (or honor, respect and acknowledgement) be to your name..." Throughout the book of Proverbs, those who do not respect and honor the LORD are called "fools" (the Hebrew word denotes one who is morally deficient).
My advice: Don't Be a Fool!!
