Six pet hates

If you had to write down a list of say half a dozen things you hate, I wonder what you’d put. Honestly now, half a dozen.
Now some people would put spiders, and some snakes, and some would be petrified of heights, and some would put pain perhaps, hypocrisy would be on most lists, providing it wasn’t our own, of course.
But then if you want to see a list of half a dozen things which the Bible says God hates, then you would be surprised at the things that are put together. In fact He gives the list of six and throws in one for good measure. These are the things that God hates; this is what He says -
Haughty eyes, a lying tongue and hands that shed innocent blood. A heart that devises wicked plans, feet that in haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and a man who sows discord among brothers,
That’s a surprising list and if you want to read it in your own time, you can find it in Proverbs Chapter 6 beginning at verse 16.
Now you can be sure that God really does hate these things and it’s no use saying, well I don’t do all those, I’m in the clear on at least half of them. That means that if you do half of them you are not in the clear. These are some of the things you do that God detests, that are an abomination to Him.
You can read it yourself and use it as a checklist. Do this today and take it before God in prayer, take it before Him in worship, and ask for a clean sheet, and the power to overcome these things.
