Fear of Heaven



“The fear of Heaven” does not mean dread of punishment, but rather awe at the greatness and might of God, and is identical with love and service (see Deuteronomy 6:13 and 10:12). It is produced by following out the practices ordained in the Torah” ~ Maimonides, Guide for the Perplexed, ed. Friedlander, p. 392.
