The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge and wisdom. These are exhortations from Proverbs. In addition to that, he who loves instructions loves knowledge (Prov. 12:1). What this translates to is this: he who loves the Lord will take time to know the Lord, learn from His will and apply His teachings to life. Thus, those who don’t do this, contrary to the frequent sentiment expressed by them, they do not love the Lord. How does one love what he does not know? As true as this is, notice what the Lord said about those who refuse His instructions, “But he who hates correction is stupid” (NKJV).
