Proverbs (6)

Verses 16-19 of our Bible Reading today list seven things that God hates: “…eyes that show pride, tongues that tell lies, hands that kill innocent people, hearts that plan evil things to do, feet that run to do evil, witnesses in court who tell lies, and anyone who causes family members to fight.”
But verses 6-15 list things that are not as easy to see. These are things like sleeping too much, being lazy or making plans to do something that is wrong. The results of these things are “you will have nothing” (verse 11), “disaster will strike” (verse 15) or “there will be no one to help them” (verse 15).
How can you avoid these terrible things? Pay attention to God’s Word. Examine your habits, your actions and your thoughts. Ask God to help you see the sin in your life and to forgive you. Then you can have a right relationship with Him.
