it's called respect
"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding." -- Proverbs 9:10 NKJV
My Mom raised us to be humble, to use common sense, and to respect authority figures. If we ever acted a fool in public, she either got us in that moment or at home (we hoped she would forget but of course she didn’t). Thank goodness it hardly ever happened because we knew and feared the consequences. You remember that saying “Have respect for your elders”? That’s how we should be towards the Father. Fearing Him means to respect Him and respecting Him means to obey Him. You don’t want your children (or nieces and nephews) to say or do just anything in front of you, right? So why would we want to do or say just anything around God? The Bible says “the fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom" (Prov. 9:10), and "...is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction" (Prov. 1:7). If we don't keep His commandments, we don't love Him. If we don't have His character (Colossians 3:12-15), we don't know Him. Obedience is better than sacrifice (1 Sam. 15:22), so let's "...act in fear of the LORD, faithfully and with a loyal heart" (2 Chron. 19:9).
