Micah 6:9 ” Listen! The Lord is calling to the city – and to fear Your Name is wisdom – ‘Heed the rod and the One who appointed it.’ “

God’s command for all of us is simple, “Heed the rod and the One who appointed it.” In Genesis 17:1 we hear the same thing, “I am God Almighty; walk before Me and be blameless.” It’s called fearing God, which is the true motivation towards a life of honesty and integrity. For when we heed the rod, we’re not only acknowledging God’s authority, His right to discipline His children, but also that He judges all fairly. Lastly, when we fear God it says we will gain wisdom which is sound judgment and insight… or as Proverbs calls wisdom… supreme and more precious then rubies.
