THE FEAR OF GOD

So I did not, because of the fear of God – Nehemiah 5:15

The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever – Psalm 19:9

Moved with godly fear – Hebrews 11:7 (R.V.)

The height of God must lay man low. – George Swinnock

As an embankment keeps out water, so the fear of God keeps out uncleanness. – Thomas Watson

PRIDE’S RISE AND FALL

The pride of the heart hath deceived thee, thou … that saith in his heart, Who shall bring me down to the ground – Obadiah 3

As death is the last enemy, so pride is the last sin that shall be destroyed in us. – John Boys

Pride loves to climb up, not as Zacchaeus to see Christ, but to be seen. – William Gurnall
