Proverbs 6:16-19
“These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.”
 
It is a strange thought for some Christians to consider the Lord actually hating something. We know Him to be the God of mercy and of grace, how much He loves us and we love Him, so we can oftentimes forget that vengeance is the Lord’s. His wrath is very real and is upon those that turn away from His love and grace. There are seven things that are repulsive and dreadful to the Lord.
 
The first is very simply the attitude that makes one overestimate oneself and discount others. This pride, or the “proud look” that the Scripture says, is something that the Lord really hates. It is only the devil that would cause someone to put another individual beneath them, whether in mind or heart. It could only be he that would cause someone to overestimate themselves, making them to be more than what they are in their own hearts. C.S. Lewis wrote in the book, Mere Christianity, “There is no fault which makes a man more unpopular, and no fault which we are  more unconscious of in ourselves. And the more we have it ourselves, the more we dislike it in others. The vice I am talking of is Pride or Self-Conceit.”
 
Humility is the opposite of pride. In order for us to get rid of our pride, we have to approach God with humility and let Him reveal to us what He would have us to see in ourselves. We have to lay down our prideful attitudes. God will not tolerate an arrogant, prideful attitude. We must learn to never overestimate ourselves and never underestimate God. We are all His children, created in His image.
 
Lay down your pride, because the Lord hates it.
 
55-0911 - “The Unwelcomed Christ”
Well, then, the first thing you know, old Pharisee said, “See, I told you He wasn’t a prophet. He would have known.” Said, “Look, that woman will even ruin His reputation.” Oh, how blind. Oh, my! Oh, pride is such an evil thing! Listen. She…He thought that woman would ruin His reputation. Why, brother, Jesus’ reputation was made in the presence of sinners. That’s where His reputation is made. Not amongst the starch and stiff, but amongst sinners who is willing to repent. That’s where Jesus’ reputation was made when sinners will come to Him.
