The Beginning of Knowledge

The Beginning of Knowledge
January 1
Proverbs 1:7
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge;
fools despise wisdom and instruction

High School Diploma BA MA PhD
all that man can offer at the most prestigious university
but if one thing isn’t present before the man’s eyes
he cannot be counted among any who are wise

A president a king a dictator or CEO
the most power you can wield the highest you can go
but without this one thing it is all mindless chatter
if you don’t have a handle on the most important matter

A Grammy or an Oscar even a Nobel prize
cannot indicate who is foolish or wise
the acquisition of wisdom lies not in award winning
but in knowing what needs to be to have a beginning

For beginning knowledge the point is quite clear
the beginning of knowledge is knowing whom to fear
no matter your past or how much treasure you’ve stored
the beginning of knowledge is the fear of the Lord
