Is there such a thing as healthy fear? Think about it. Without a healthy fear of fire, you can get third burns. Without a healthy fear of lions, you can become lunch. Without a healthy fear of electrical wires, you can be lit up like a Christmas Tree. Is there such a thing as a healthy fear of God? Young Lucy in C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia is curious about the Lion named Aslan and queries Mr. Beaver who is educating her on this great leader of Narnia. “Then he isn’t safe?” said Lucy. “Safe?” said Mr. Beaver. “Don’t you hear what Mrs. Beaver tells you? Who said anything about safe? ’Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good. He’s the King, I tell you.” Translation: have a healthy fear of a Lion who is King but know that he is good. The Bible says the "fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom." By contrast, Jesus says, the unwise fear of men can dilute God's desire of being the dominant force in our lives. So, are you living wisely?
