Hated Things

Scripture

“There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.” ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭6:16-19‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Observation

These verses reveal the seven things that God hates: 1) eyes of arrogance, 2) lying speech, 3) murderous hands, 4) a deceptive heart, 5) evil steps, 6) a false witness, and 7) one who sows discord.

Application

The true character of an individual is revealed in his/her actions. Proverbs reveals that the wickedness of an individual is demonstrated in their arrogant glances, destructive hands, deceiving heart, evil walk, false witness, and discord. Every aspect of their life screams disobedience, self absorbtion, and pride. Each is contrary to the walk and life of a true follower of God. 

Prayer

Lord may our lives be a reflection of you in our walk, speech, and other actions toward others. Reveal to us any evil within us and transform our heart and our desires to glorify you.
