My first post

I don't really understand where I'm going to go with this, but I'm going to give it a try and see if I can effectively relate and share my ideas to those who are interested. I have the hope and desire to help change lives for the better with the sharing of knowledge.

To me , Knowledge is the principle thing , but along with that knowledge e we have to get wisdom and understanding. Wisdom is the analysis of the application of knowledge in our lives and understanding is not only the analysis of wisdom, but also the practical application and post mortem of wisdom.

Understanding allows us to accept things as they are, but also the strength to attempt to change the things we can using our wisdom as our guide.

The beginning of knowledge as Solomon(PBUH) wrote is the fear of God. What is this fear that is spoken of?

Its not the same fear you might get from watching "Nightmare on Elm Street" or "It" by Stephen King, but its the kind of fear and or reverence you get when you acknowledge how small you are on the grand scheme of things and how easily you can be snuffed out. Its when we realize our mortality.

Once we get this kind of fear we begin to truly act on this fear which means we will begin to reverence God with the awe He deserves. The only true way and guidance as to how we are supposed to reverence God is given to us through scriptures and that is through submission.

Unless we are willing to submit to God are we truly fearful?

What does it mean to submit?

How can one submit on a daily basis?
