Get On His Good Side

God loves us so much, He tells us in His word in many places how we are to live and how we can please Him. He also tells us through His word what He doesn't like.

Some of these things may seem little to you, but the word says, God hates these six things, yet even the seventh does He detest. Pay close attention, we may find that we have all been guilty of the seven.

Prov. 6 v 16-19....These six things the Lord hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him. A proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren....

Let's look at what this scripture is saying. First of all the main point in this scripture is: GOD HATES GOSSIP! When we act like we are better than others we have a proud look, when we lie, or gossip about others, we shed innocent blood, when we can't wait to run and tell someone something we heard about another, we shed innocent blood, when we are constantly gossiping about others, we shed innocent blood.

The Word calls this person a worthless and wicked man.

Prov 6 v 12-14....A worthless person, a wicked man, walks with a perverse mouth. He winks with his eyes, he shuffles his feet, he points with his fingers; perversity is in his heart, he devises evil continually, he sows discord....

Remember before we open our mouths to say something negative, or falsely about another, stop and think what does God think about what I am getting ready to say? He calls it an ABOMINATION!! Instead stop and pray for that person and pray for ourself that God will forgive us for those evil thoughts about that person and cleanse those thoughts from our hearts.

Stop and repent and get that negative thought out of your heart so that it does not pass through your lips into the hearing of others. But most importantly, so that you do not offend God. AMEN!

God gives us great instruction on how to live, and how to live pleasing Him, so that we will have long lives and peace.

Prov 3 v 1-2....My son, do not forget my law, but let your heart keep my commands, for length of days and long life and peace they will add to you.....

And what are His commands, that you love Him with all your heart, mind and soul, and love your neighbor as yourself. These are His greatest commandments. Learn to walk in these and everything else will fall into place.
