The Fear of God Is to Hate Evil – Reflection on Proverbs 8:13

Proverbs 8:13, The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogance, and the evil way, and the fraudulent mouth, do I hate.

Today’s Gospel

The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogance, and the evil way, and the fraudulent mouth, do I hate. – Proverbs 8:13

Reflection

From this verse we can see that, God loathes all evils. Since we believe in God, we should fear Him, love what God loves and hate what He hates. Only in this way, our thoughts can be compatible with God. Share one piece of God’s word, “When you start believing in God, the truth and God’s words don’t mention these things. What does God’s word require as the principle for treating others? Love what God loves, hate what God hates. That is, the people loved by God who truly pursue the truth and who carry out God’s will, are the people you should love. Those who don’t carry out God’s will, hate God, disobey God, and are despised by God, are people we should despise and reject. That’s what God’s word requires.”
