1 John 4-5~ Day 108~ God is listening to every word!

Just last night, I was with a group of Christians and the topic came up about having "the fear of the Lord".  The question was asked, do Christians need to have a healthy fear of the Lord?

I believe the discussion ended with a redefining of the term "fear" to "healthy respect of his power".  Yes, everyone needs to have a healthy respect of God.

However, I find it quit remarkable that today's reading felt like God was answering the question for us,......the way He wanted to answer! 
"And we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us.  God is love, and the one who remains in love remains in God, and God remains in him.  In this,  love is made complete with us so that we may have confidence in the day of judgement, because as he is, so also are we in this world.  There is no fear in love; instead, perfect love drives out fear, because fear involves punishment.  So the one who fears is not complete in love.  (1 John 4:15-18) 
Well, there you go!  Boom!
I love when God shows he is intimately listening to our conversations and wants to chime in!!!
