The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of knowledge:
[but] fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Filial Love – W. Arnot, D. D.
Filial love stands near and leans on godliness.
It is next to reverence for God.
That first and highest commandment is like the earth’s allegiance to the sun by general law; and filial obedience is like day and night, summer and winter, budding spring and ripening harvest, on the earth’s surface.
There could be none of these sweet changes and beneficent operations of nature on our globe if it were broken away from the sun.
So when a people burst the first and greatest bond; when a people cast off the fear of God, the family relations, with all their beauty and benefit, disappear.
