A Good, Healthy, Fear of God...

"That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified." - 1st Thessalonians 4:6 (KJV)
Paul, listing what following Christ looks like, makes an important and overlooked statement that God still avenges wrong, even among his children.

Accepting Christ doesn't mean that, if you cheat, you won't suffer the consequences. A good, healthy, fear of God is a good thing, and should never be out of style.

"Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king." - 1st Peter 2:17 (KJV)
