MEMORIZE: For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee. Psalms 5:4
BIBLE VERSE PROVERBS 6:16-19
16. These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
17. A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18. An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
19. A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
In today’s Bible passage, there is a list of sins that God hates and detests. Let us consider a few of them.
Firstly, God hates pride. Pride is an abomination to God and the proud will not go unpunished.
There’s a saying that pride goes before a fall.
This means that if you are puffed up about your academic, spiritual, social or intellectual achievements, it is only a matter of time before you fall.
Secondly, God hates a lying tongue. Satan is the father of lies.
If you are still lying and claim to be a child of God, I am not sure you know who your father is.
The Bible says Jesus is the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6). God will never lie. God despises a heart that plots evil.
Therefore, you should be conscious of the content of your mind.
Occupy your mind only with the things that will please God. Be careful not to cover up sin for anyone.
If you cover up a sin for your friend, you will be judged as though you were the one that committed the sin.
Also, God detests false witnesses. God hates it when you bring confusion into a peaceful place.
God hates any sinful act, be mindful of this.
A true child of God will hate what God hates and love what He loves.
