The Fear of the Lord

Why a study on the Fear of the Lord?  I’ve long felt a need in my own heart and mind to truly understand it.  Proverbs says that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of both knowledge and wisdom.  I desire to grow in both knowledge and wisdom; and since the Bible says that the fear of the Lord is the beginning – well, that’s a very good place to start.  I’m sure we all know people who have a lot of knowledge but do not have the fear of the Lord.  We probably also know people – though fewer in number – who have at least a measure of wisdom yet do not fear the Lord.  So what exactly is it?
