It Is My God Whom I Fear – Alma 60:28

28 Yea, behold I do not fear your power nor your authority, but it is my God whom I fear; and it is according to his commandments that I do take my sword to defend the cause of my country, and it is because of your iniquity that we have suffered so much loss.

Whom do we fear? It’s so much easier to react to the person in front of us and to ignore the person who is not present even though we may later have to account to the other person for our actions. 
Elder Lynn G. Robbins reminds us that Jesus always did the things which pleased His Father regardless of what people wanted Him to do. He also reminds us that if we fear man more than we fear God, we have effectively reversed the first two great commandments (see Matthew 22:37–39) (“Which Way Do You Face?” General Conference, Oct 2014).
Today, I will keep my priorities in order by fearing God more than I fear other people. I will seek to follow the Savior in doing always those things which please my Father regardless of what other people may think about my actions or how they may react.
