Blessed Is Everyone Who Fears the Lord

Psalm 128

A happy home is a home that fears the Lord.

  1. A Portrait of a Happy Home (v.1-4)

The fear of God consists in a right appreciation of, and response to, who God is. It is the response of a believer to the nature and character of God as he has revealed himself. Principally, it is a response to the quality in God which we identify as his “god-ness” — that is to say, his greatness and his majesty. It is the sense of awe and wonder that comes when we realize that the God of heaven calls us into fellowship with himself. —Derek Thomas
