REWARD #1 Riches, Honor, and Life
Okay, God's Word says this. The rewards of developing the fear of the Lord are emphasized throughout Scripture. Having the fear of God is a requirement for riches, honor, and life. A person may have worldly riches, honor and life, but they are a fleeting pleasure that will wane away.
This may not mean that we will be millionaires, but it does mean that we will not suffer lack or need of any good thing.
Proverbs 22:4 ESV The reward for humility and fear of the LORD is riches and honor and life.
Psalms 34:8-10 ESV Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him! (9) Oh, fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him have no lack! (10) The young lions suffer want and hunger; but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.
Psalms 112:1-3 ESV Praise the LORD! Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who greatly delights in his commandments! (2) His offspring will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed. (3) Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever.
