G-d Will Make Us Fear Him Perfectly explained.Thank you.

As someone who has lived my whole life loving
G-d, it is only very recently that I comprehended "fear of G-d".. and it has made me see many things in retrospect that were just out of my range of sight all my years on this earth. It is just as you say..realizing that G-d is watching each individual of us as sharply as one human can watch another human initially sent a shock of near paralysis through me..but following that initial reaction was the swift relaxation from knowing that as intensely as I am watched by G-d, I am also accepted and loved by G-d, just as any loving parent watches and loves his or her own child or as any person watches and loves another person..The difference is,
G-d will knock a body completely out to get our attention if it is necessary to teach us to fear Him. I am still processing things I have been learning the past few months, and paying attention as more "dawning" occurs. I am thankful for your part in it all. Reply

Fear of God Dear Rabbi,
Everyday when my kids and I pray we ask for the fear of God , and this is hard to teach to kids as God is love, our source of protection, source of wisdom, strength and so on. Well you have given me such a great, down to Earth teaching I can share with my kids today! Why do we sometimes look for the complication in the easily understood. Reply
