Proverbs 1:1-7; The beginning of knowledge

Solomon states the attitudes demonstrated by a man seeking wisdom.  Know, discern, receive instruction, give prudence, hear, increase in learning, and acquire wise counsel.  But before we choose to build these qualities into our lives we must find a beginning point for seeking knowledge.  This beginning point stated in verse 7 is fear of the Lord.  Before any of the other attitudes manifest, we must learn to fear the Lord.  What does it mean to fear the Lord?
