We’ve been talking about two different types of fear this month. Last week we talked about what it means to “Fear the LORD” (Proverbs 1:7). This week we explore what it means to “Fear Man.” Our verse of scripture comes from Proverbs today, and it reads…
Proverbs 29:25-26 (ESV), 25 The fear of man lays a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is safe. 26 Many seek the face of a ruler, but it is from the LORD that a man gets justice.
The world desires to force us into submission by fear, but God desires to lead us into freedom by love. The fear of men turns us into hypocrites, but the fear of God grows integrity.
