To me, the fear of God involves believing that all human beings are equal and that God is greater than all human beings.
Today a friend told me she was worried she might be homeless one day because she is disabled and my response was, the chances of that happening were very low because of food banks and Salvation Army used clothing stores that could help her save her rent money and church donors that could provide her with support and I think she was disappointed by my response.
She probably wanted me to say that she could live with me if she became homeless but I did not say that because she wasn’t a funny, intelligent, and handsome man like the guy I want to marry. This fear came over me when I realized I was ready to deny housing accommodation to a disabled girl because she was neither intelligent nor funny, and that I favoured the guy I like because of his intelligence and good looks.
So to me, fearing God means treating all people as equal and caring for the needs of all who deserve it, not just those who are beautiful or intelligent or rich. I don’t do this all the time, but God is helping me to start doing that.
