Things God Hates

Today’s verse  poses many questions. However, the question that needs to be answered is this; does God hate? According to this passage, He does, but what the text is saying is that these seven sins oppose God’s character which is love. Each item in this list represents a violation of godly character and a disruption to harmonious living. 1. Haughty eyes reflect pride, 2. Lying tongue opposes truth, 3. Hands that shed innocent blood go against the sanctity of life, 4. A heart devising wicked schemes undermines integrity, 5. Feet quick to rush into evil denote a lack of moral restraint, 6. A false witness who pours out lies corrupts justice, 7. One who stirs up conflict destroys community unity.

Proverbs 6:16-19, challenges us to cultivate virtues that contrast these detestable sins. We are called to humility, truthfulness, respect for life, integrity, moral discipline, honesty, and peace-making. These virtues are not just moral ideals; they reflect God’s character and are the blueprint for a life that pleases Him.

Today, as we ponder this Proverb about the 7 things God hates, let it be a mirror to our souls. We must strive to reject the behaviours that are in opposition to God’s character and embrace the virtues He cherishes. In doing so, we align ourselves more closely with His will, contributing positively to our spiritual growth and the well-being of our community.

There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community. (Proverbs 6:16-19).

Let’s Pray

Yahweh, I confess that in the past I have done one or more of these sins that are an abomination to you. Father, I repent and renounce having a proud look, having a lying tongue, for hands that shed innocent blood, having a heart that devised wicked imaginations, and feet that be swift in running to mischief, for being a false witness and speaking lies, and sowing discord among my brothers and sister in the Lord, whether it’s in a church or group of people, slandering others that are fellow believers. Father, please forgive me and I repent! Help me to walk in the light, as Christ is the light. Lord, I thank you for restoring me and for throwing all my sins into the sea of forgetfulness, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
