The Fear of GOD

Should we love God or should we fear God? As per me there is no need to have fear of God in our mind as God is not someone to be feared but loved. Loving God let's you come closer to Him. God is called the "Ocean of Love". If you love Him a little bit then He shall love you ten folds, as God is hungry of love & devotion only. In "Bhagwat Gita" also Lord Krishna says to Arjuna to adore Him as then He shall be pleased with him. I wonder many times, why sometimes fear of God is put in people's mind so that they can mend their ways. As per me there is no need to have fear of God in one's mind but should have love of God in our mind. Below is a funny story when a mother tried to mend the ways of her young children by putting the "Fear of God" in them. Enjoy the story:

"There were two brothers who were always up to some mischief. If somebody had been locked up in his house it was surely the mischief of the two brothers. If somebody's dog had been painted green, one always knew who the culprits were, similarly if someone's vehicle's tyres were found flat it was surely to be the mischief of two brothers.

One day the boys mother asked a priest to talk to her sons and put THE FEAR OF GOD in them so that they would mend their ways. The priest asked her to send her sons to him one at a time.

When the younger boy, a lad of ten, came, he made him sit and asked him : " WHERE IS GOD ?" The boy did not answer. The priest asked again, in a louder voice: " WHERE IS GOD?" The boy remained silent. But when the priest asked the same question third time, the boy jumped up and ran away. He went straight to his brother. " We are in big trouble!" he gasped. "What's wrong? asked the older brother, warily,wondering which of their sins had caught up with them.

"GOD IS MISSING," said the youngster, " and they think we have something to do with it !!!!"
