What the Lord Hates

What the Lord Hates

According to Proverbs 6:16-19, there are seven things the Lord hates:
1) Haughty eyes
2) A lying tongue
3) Hands that shed innocent blood
4) A heart that devises wicked plans
5) Feet that make haste to run to evil
6) A false witness who breathes out lies
7) One who sows discord among brethren

What the Lord Loves

It goes to follow, then, that the opposite of the above would be seven things that the Lord loves:
1) Humble eyes and life
2) A truthful tongue seasoned with kindness
3) Hands that dispense mercy, providing for the needs of all
4) A heart that is always devising ways to do holy things
5) Feet that run to help others, preach the gospel, and worship God
6) A truthful witness of the gospel
7) A peacemaker, one who lives in harmony with the church

Are you doing anything the Lord hates? Please stop it now. Are you doing everything the Lord loves? If not, resolve to do them all, even today.
