During the last Wives of Faith Blog Carnival I won a book by Kathleen Cline titled I Want To Be the Fat Pretty One Reflecting God's Esteem. At the end of each chapter it asks questions about what was read and this chapter asked to find Proverbs that touched of the topic of the chapter. I wanted to share those with you.

The fear of the Lord adds length to life, but the years of the wicked are cut short.
The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, turning a man from the snares of death.
The fear of the Lord teaches a man wisdom, and humility comes before honor.
Through love and faithfulness sin is atoned for; through the fear of the Lord a man avoids evil.
The fear of the Lord leads to life: Then one rests content, untouched by trouble.
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
