4Humility is the fear of the LORD; its wages are riches and honor and life.

22: 4   This general observation— that honoring and respecting the Lord brings benefits in this life— would have been especially applicable to an obedient Israelite living in Solomon’s God-fearing kingdom. Nevertheless, some have been martyrs at a young age, and some have forfeited all their wealth for the sake of God’s kingdom. The book of Proverbs describes life the way it should be. It does not dwell much on the exceptions.

Tyndale. NIV Life Application Study Bible

Do we fear the lord? The kind of fear here is not a fear of punishment as much as it is a fear of a life without JESUS in our lives! If the LORD JESUS is in our life and we honor him, worship him, and strive to be more like him, then we will be rich in his kingdom and have eternal life that is more than any amount of money on earth could buy. are we ready to fear the life without CHRIST and be rich beyond anything we could have here on earth??

ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and make sure that we live a humble life and FEAR a life without JESUS, so that we can be rich, have honor and an eternal life with our LORD and SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST!! By Richard Dean Brooks
