“There are six things that the LORD hates, seven that are an abomination to him:”

Haughty eyes  (Where and when have I looked down upon others—pride of race, face, place, and grace? Where and when have I possessed an exaggerated sense of my own opinions and interests, and a diminished awareness of the needs of others?

A lying tongue (Where have I succumbed to the hellish tactics of the devil by shading or not telling the truth?

Hands that shed innocent blood (Where have I belittled, insulted, hated, or killed my neighbor with thoughts, words, and/or gestures? Where am I battling bitterness and the desire for revenge?)

A heart that devises wicked plans (Have I purposefully or unintentionally harmed another in thought, word, or deed? Where have I neglected to give a helping hand to someone in need?)

Feet that make haste to run to evil (Where have I been led astray by rash, unexamined and untested desires which have led me into sin?)

A false witness who breathes out lies (Where have I not been an advocate for justice and mercy? Where have I talked about others in a way that makes me look better than I am? Where am I being tempted to cancel people with whom I disagree?)

One who sows discord among brothers (Where have I neglected to cultivate peaceful relationships with others? Where have I meddled in other people’s business, mocked their accomplishments, published their failures, or proudly announced my own achievements?
