There Are Six Things God Hates - The Seventh He Detests

These six things does the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: 
Proverbs 6:16 -19 

1)  A Proud Look

Whatever you do, no matter how proud you are, get that smug look off your face when you know you are right, did a good job, or felt better than another.  God just hates that. No matter how much you love yourself don't show it!  

This is what God says, "Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall."

2)  A Lying Tongue

Stop telling those little white lies, even if their funny. God hears you and doesn't like them or think funny.  God is humourless. He even hates fish stories, don't spice up a story, exaggerate or even flower a tale. "Just the facts," that's all he wants, nothing sugar coated. To God, people that lie don't last.

3)  Hands That Shed Innocent Blood

This includes any kind of violence from childhood bullies to extortion, robbery and murder.   God won't tolerate it.

4)  A Heart That Devises Wicked Schemes

Don't run someone else down, or accuse others to destroy their credibility. Use all those creative energies to build-up and improve, not tear down.

5)  Feet That Are Quick To Rush Into Evil

We all know what the mob mentality does, don't get caught up in it.  Try to maintain and restore peace not an instigator.

6)  A False Witness Who Pours Out Lies

This goes with #2. but more if you are acting as a public witness, tell the truth, or go to jail.

7)  A Man Who Stirs Up Dissension Among Brothers

To God this is the Devil's work, an abomination. The worst of the worst things you could do. Discord, he hates discord, which include a combination of traits, including deceitfulness.  Something God cannot tolerate, spreading rumours to sow discord, a no-no.

God's reaction. "The meek shall inherit the earth"
