Proverbs 6:16-19 (NLT)
16 There are six things the Lord hates—no, seven things he detests: 17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that kill the innocent, 18 a heart that plots evil, feet that race to do wrong, 19 a false witness who pours out lies, a person who sows discord in a family.

To emphasis the point of his wise words, Solomon says there are six things the Lord hates, but then he adds – no, seven things he detests. The listed sins affect other lives and not just the life of the person committing the sin. God hates sin, every sin, but these sins are hated by God in a special way for the impact they cause.

There have been many celebrities in the news who have committed crimes or offenses towards others. Yet there are those who will step up and justify the reasons for their sin. God doesn’t ask for us to justify sin. He asks that we acknowledge our sins and repent. Proverbs clearly points out some sins that cause pain to others: conceit for others, creating lies that hurt others , murdering another, the imagination of sin towards another, eagerness to sin towards another, making false statements about others, and one who causes discord in their own family and other families. A short list, but a list that includes some sin for which we are all are guilty. Pray people would see sin the same way God does. Pray we all would repent and turn towards God instead of hiding from our sins.
