Fear Hashem and be afraid to do aveiros (sins).

"Whoever sins in secret is like someone who kicks the feet of the Shechinah." (Hagigah 16A)
"Hashem says, "The heaven is My throne, and the earth is a stool for My feet." (Yeshayahu 66:1)
A person who is embarrassed to sin in public but not in private, kicks the feet of the Shechinah. He behaves as if "the feet of the Shechinah" do not rest on the world (Maharsha). We are lucky that Hashem always reminds us that He is near.
