What do you think the Lord Hates?

These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

(Proverbs 6:16-19)

We see here the Lord hates six things, but there is a seventh thing He hates the worst of all, the discord among brethren. Lets go over these things one at a time.

“A proud look.” The Lord detests this for it renders the person unfit for the reception of grace! “A lying tongue” which the Lord knows betrays the deceitful heart. “Hands that shed innocent blood.” The Lord sees that the shedding of innocent blood emboldens a person’s heart to evil and “wicked imagination” and the “pursuit of every evil mischief”. Bearing “false witness” leads to “Discord among brethren.” The Lord knows the pursuits of this person have grave implications for the covenant community, for this person’s lies produce continuous discord among the brethren.

You see how you can stay out of the Lord’s disdain by just obeying the Lords Commandments.

All glory to God
